2nd Annual Mac Networkers Retreat Approaching -- Macworld Expo in Boston may have shrunk, and ADHOC/MacHack may be no more, but other Macintosh events carry on. From 30-Oct-05 through 01-Nov-05, the second annual Mac Networkers Retreat promises to provide the kind of real-world information that Mac network and IT managers need. It's particularly good to see the organizers acknowledging that the conference needs to offer training that goes beyond what can be learned from online sources, with topics like advanced Mac OS X Tiger Server administration, AirPort network design and management, implementation of LDAP and Directory Services, services and security in Mac OS X Server, and a Mac Admin Beginners Bootcamp. The retreat, held at the Seascape Resort in Aptos, CA (near Monterey), will have over 30 hours of instruction, and it costs $700 before 30-Sep-05, $800 after. The only downside as I see it? Much as I enjoy trading denial-of-service attack stories and practicing wireless network traffic sniffing, spending Halloween with a bunch of cool network geeks could be really scary. [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.
