Karl Pottie has released Keep It Up 2.1, the latest version of his widely used server application monitoring tool. Version 2.1 includes a few bug fixes, adds the capability to view log files produced by Keep It Up or other programs via the Web and to quit all programs except for Keep It Up and the Finder. Keep It Up 2.0 added remote management capabilities via a private, password-protected HTTP server, enabling administrators to quit and launch applications, gather system information, or restart the machine. The $22 shareware Keep It Up is a 248K download.
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.
