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.

TidBITS 16th Anniversary Vacation

Send Article to a Friend

TidBITS 16th Anniversary Vacation -- This week marks the 16th anniversary of TidBITS, which we're celebrating with a West Coast vacation that will also feature a dinner with the Seattle-based members of the staff, along with a visit to our Xserve at digital.forest to install Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger Server. We can't guarantee we'll have (or want to use!) Internet access for much of the trip, so don't expect quick responses to email while we're away. Nevertheless, we're packing a slew of technology so hopefully I'll have plenty to write about once we're back. With all that, we're taking next week off, so look for our next issue on 01-May-06!
