Here is a Leopard tip for anyone unfortunate enough to use Entourage. Exclude your mail database from your time machine backup. Since its a continuous file, TM will copy the whole thing every day. Your backup drive will run out fast.
I do fresh installs about every 6 months. Its just a habit I have developed over many years of geekery.

I got Leopard today. I can't believe Fedex delivered it on saturday, I went the easy way and upgraded, took 30min on my Mac Pro. No problems all my settings stayed the same. It's cool that Front Row is now in the Applications folder, and the keyboard shortcut works after you enable it in the keyboard preferences. So far I like it alot.

I think you mean SP. Otherwise someone has sent you a copy of Winblows with a Leopard skin for joke.
My dock isn't huge though. And stacks should show their names when you hover over them. You're right when you say the dock isn't all that pretty though. I guess there isn't that much you can really do with it aesthetically.

Does anyone know if Time Machine will allow you to backup to another partition on the same hard drive? Let's not argue about how stupid that may be, but for some of us who tend to keep good backups (myself) and just want to have their project folders backed up using this method, then it's worth it.
Sure, the partition may have a different name, but it would be mounted as disk0s3 (example)...which would be the same in Unix. Just curious if Apple prevented Time Machine to operate on the same physical media this way.
