But of course we all know that there are eight SCSI ID numbers (0-7, of which the SCSI controller always steals one), not seven as Jeff Needleman accidentally wrote last issue. Thanks to John Saxton, Frank Nagy, Ioannis Mangos, and everyone else who pointed this out. We don't like being wrong, but we do like correcting our mistakes.
Single Time Machine Backups
Tired of Time Machine running all the time? You can turn it off in the Time Machine preference pane, but still initiate a single backup by choosing Back Up Now from Time Machine's menu bar icon. Of course, your backup is much less likely to be up to date, but Time Machine won't be taking any resources while you're trying to work.
