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.

Poll Preview: Putting the "I" in Internet

Send Article to a Friend

Poll Preview: Putting the "I" in Internet -- We hear a great deal about how the Internet is changing the face of commerce and publishing and all sorts of important professional and technical pursuits. But what about our personal lives? Tonya has been off being a mother for a couple years now, and she relates below how she's used the Internet to learn a great deal about parenting, which is, not surprisingly, a highly complex topic with lots of information and opinions related to every decision. So for this week, we'd like to ask, "In your personal life, to what extent do you find the Internet a worthwhile source for information, community, learning, or support?" Please do register your opinion on our home page today - I think the results will be quite interesting. [ACE]
