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.

Send Article to a Friend

TidBITS 2003 Holiday Hiatus -- It's been a mad rush to the end of the year, but you're reading our last TidBITS issue for 2003, and we're all anticipating some well-deserved relaxation with friends and family over the next few weeks of the holiday season. I'd like to express my heartfelt thanks to the many people who help keep TidBITS vital and relevant: Tonya, Geoff, Jeff, Matt, Mark, and Glenn, our corporate sponsors and Internet hosts, our knowledgeable authors and contributors, our amazing volunteer translators, all the participants of TidBITS Talk, the folks who have helped make the Take Control project the huge success it is, and of course, everyone who gives meaning to our work by reading TidBITS each week. Our next issue will appear on 05-Jan-04, as we gear up for Macworld Expo in San Francisco. See you in 2004! [ACE]
