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.

To clarify recent comments on the Nisus upgrade, there are two versions, 3.4L and 3.4C, which differ in two ways. The most common version, Nisus 3.4L, supports Roman languages and Japanese, and is NOT copy protected. Nisus 3.4C adds support for all non-Roman languages (Farsi, Russian, Hebrew, Arabic, etc.) and is copy protected with a dongle. I won't discuss this issue further, but I'm sure Nisus Software would gladly listen to constructive suggestions on how they can avoid the dongle and still convince recalcitrant overseas distributors to carry Nisus 3.4C.
