MacDevCenter.com: has a good article on getting ready for Tiger, which I may not get to use until Monday 🙁 But I have already used SuperDuper to make a clone of the drive (worth the $20 in my opinion). I can boot off the FireWire drive if necessary.
I am looking forward to this release, but am like others sort of skeptical, since this is the first major OS upgrade to my Mac.
A great list of things to think about with regard to the release of Tiger. I am getting way too excited over this release, however, I am a bit nervous about upgrading the OS, since this is the first time I am upgrading my Mac OS.

Be sure, whatever order you use, to repair permissions after installiing iLife ’05. If you have issues with iDVD operating sluggishly, repair your iPhoto database /library- hold down the shift & option keys and start iPhoto and follow the dialogs…note it can take a considerable amount of time to complete.

If you recently installed iLife software, it’s a good idea to open each application in the following order: iTunes, iPhoto, iMovie, and then iDVD. Because these applications are integrated to browse and import files from each other’s media libraries, this ensures that you will be viewing the most up-to-date versions of your Music Library, Photo Library, and Movies Folder no matter what application you’re using.
iDevGames established the uDevGame game creation contest in 2001 to encourage innovation in Macintosh game development and to recognize the best developers in our community. Last year’s contest featured over 40 games created by independent Mac developers from around the world, awarded entrants from a total prize pool valued at more than $27,000, received international press coverage, and was featured by leading Macintosh sites such as Inside Mac Games.
A cool game I just grabbed was Wild Life Hockey a one on one arcade style hockey game with a polar bear in between the pipes and an elk out on the ice for each team. The game offers both single player and network multi-player action. WildLands Hockey and its source code are available as a free download.
