The real problem with organizing a podcast around well-known Macintosh writers is that we're all slaves to Apple's product announcements. Normally, that just means we're a bit more crazed, but still up for recording MacNotables podcasts. But with the release of Leopard, we all disappeared into major deadlines, resulting in only a few shows since Leopard's ship date. But last week, Tonya and I and Andy Ihnatko were able to connect with Chuck Joiner to record a two-part show. In the first part, we talked about the TidBITS Gift Guide, what we're really doing with regard to Leopard, and some social networking sites. In the second part, we continue the discussion of social networking sites before veering off into a look at another of Andy's areas of expertise - comic books - along with some thoughts on the 1980s. (We’re easily sidetracked at the best of times, and we're all still mentally exhausted.)
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.
