    Word of advice to all the people using software to get the job done. Make sure it fully supports them so you don't find yourself with a pretty OS and empty pockets due to customers suing you for not delivering work on time :D

    Connect external hard drive, set it up as time machine, let it do it's thing for how ever long it needs and you're good.

    There are two kinds of people. Ones that make backups and ones that sooner or later will. You don't want to be that second group as it usually starts with a HD feckup which leads you to loosing files and quite often not being able to recover them.

    :cool:

    It's nice that they allow users all the way back to Snow Leopard a free upgrade. I definitely will be downloading this when the servers aren't getting hammered. :D

    Actually, it is.

    Search for it in the App Store or follow the link from http://www.apple.com/osx
