Info-Mac Back Soon -- Worrying about the return of Info-Mac? Fear not, Info-Mac will return - the moderators continue to work hard at correctly setting up all the important scripts and Unix details. All the files have been moved over from sumex-aim, and the new machine (a gift from AOL a few years ago), is officially set up and working at MIT. The hope is that Info-Mac will come online in the next week or so. Please don't submit new files to the archive until that time; some resubmissions will be necessary for files that arrived during the move. [ACE]
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.
