Golden Hill Software has released CloudPull 2.5.4 with a handful of improvements to the Google data backup application (see “Back Up Your Google Data with CloudPull,” 6 March 2012). The update responds to changes to the Google Calendar API to restore the capability of backing up calendars, adds the capability to control the HTTP timeout length and the number of simultaneous downloads per account when backing up Google Drive files, fixes a crash that occurred when retrieving an updated list of mail messages from Gmail, and fixes a bug that caused a crash during the first backup cycle.

Enabling Auto Spelling Correction in Snow Leopard
In Snow Leopard, the automatic spelling correction in applications is not usually activated by default. To turn it on, make sure the cursor's insertion point is somewhere where text can be entered, and either choose Edit > Spelling and Grammar > Correct Spelling Automatically or, if the Edit menu's submenu doesn't have what you need, Control-click where you're typing and choose Spelling and Grammar > Correct Spelling Automatically from the contextual menu that appears. The latter approach is particularly likely to be necessary in Safari and other WebKit-based applications, like Mailplane.
