My first experience with Time Machine

Sweet. Here is a detailed account of my first experience with Time Machine, Apple's new and exciting automated backup feature in Mac OS X 10.5, AKA "Leopard".

**Step 1:** Become totally unresponsive and do weird UI things during configuration (10 minutes):

**Step 2:** Crash

I hoped and hoped that it would just work, but maybe Time Machine just isn't for me.

As a caveat, I should mention that I am not a normal computer user. I have a complicated drive configuration, and I tried to make Time Machine work on a couple terabytes of data.
