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.

Tilery 4.0.1 Released -- Rick Holzgrafe of Semicolon Software has released The Tilery 4.0.1, a maintenance release of his $15 shareware desktop launcher utility (see "The Tilery 4.0 Squares Off" in TidBITS-437). Bug fixes solve crashes that could occur when using Desktop Printing and when selecting a new target for a damaged folder tile. In addition, users can now keep more than one application visible even when the Always Hide Others feature is enabled. The Tilery 4.0.1 is free to registered users of 4.0 and is a 427K download.
