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.

Tinderbox 2 Improves Weblog Tools -- Eastgate Systems has released Tinderbox 2, an update to its utility for storing and organizing notes and other informational content (see "Light Your Fire with Tinderbox" in TidBITS-651). In addition to gaining an overall speed boost and interface polish, the new version includes the Tinderbox Weblog Assistant for setting up a personal weblog. If you already use weblog software such as Moveable Type, Radio UserLand, or Blogger, Tinderbox 2 can easily send notes as weblog entries. The Tinderbox 2 upgrade is available for $70, which includes a year of free upgrades; if you're still within a year of purchasing a previous version of Tinderbox, downloading and installing the 3.7 MB demo automatically unlocks the application. A full version of the program costs $145. [JLC]
