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.

Send Article to a Friend

WebSTAR 3.0.2 Update Released -- StarNine Technologies has released WebSTAR 3.0.2, a new version of the widely used Web server. WebSTAR 3.0.2 offers a host of under-the-hood fixes and enhancements, including significantly improved FTP and MacBinary compatibility, data cache improvements, numerous bug fixes, and workarounds for Open Transport memory leaks on PowerPC systems. WebSTAR 3.0.2 is free to WebSTAR 3.x customers, and a 12.6 MB updater will upgrade any version of WebSTAR 3.0 or 3.0.1 (including background and SSL versions) to version 3.0.2. Because updating Web server software can be complicated, be sure you have a complete backup of your current configuration and read StarNine's detailed instructions before updating. [GD]
