OS X Lion: Restore windows when quitting and re-opening apps

I just upgraded my work laptop to Lion recently.

After the reversed scrolling behavior, the next big annoyance was that when I launch apps they open with all of the documents that were open when I quit them. This was particularly noticeable and annoying with Preview.app and Microsoft Word, because I typically open these to quickly look at something and then I quit them.

If you’re wondering how to turn this behavior off, uncheck the box shown below in System Preferences | General | Restore windows when quitting and re-opening apps:

Memeo backup = slow

I replaced a defective Seagate GoFlex portable hard drive a few days ago and the new one that Seagate sent me had Memeo backup software on it. I decided to give it a whirl.

I got it configured, but judging from how long it appears to take to do a complete backup, I don’t think it will be sticking around long.

22,023 hours remaining?!?!

I already have Carbon Copy Cloner for cloning my whole drive to a USB hard drive and I have Carbonite for doing backups of various important files such as pictures and music to the cloud. That is probably good enough.
