Interarchy 7.2 Sports Useful New Features -- Stairways Software's Interarchy is a venerable file transfer utility, but two new features in the recently released Interarchy 7.2 are sure to be helpful to many users. A new Bookmark bar makes it easier to jump quickly to often-visited locations, and an Auto Uploads feature makes it possible to match a local folder to a remote destination, such that files dropped in the local folder automatically upload to the destination. Among other smaller changes, Stairways improved the contextual menu in Safari that makes it possible to download files from the Web using Interarchy. Interarchy 7 requires Mac OS X 10.2 or greater. If you already own Interarchy 7.x, the upgrade is free. [TJE]
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.
