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.

Speed Bump for Speed Doubler Users

Speed Bump for Speed Doubler Users -- Connectix has identified potentially serious problems with using Speed Doubler and Apple's Find File under the new Mac OS 7.6. Problems range from innocuous ones like Find File not displaying information to scary ones like disk catalog errors. Last Friday, Connectix released the Speed Doubler 2.0.1 Updater, which corrects the problem for 2.0 users. Speed Doubler 1.x users should be able to update to version 1.3.2 in the very near future; Connectix may have posted the 1.3.2 Updater by the time you read this text. These releases are both U.S. versions; Connectix plans to release localized versions soon. [TJE]
