An alternative to Time Machine?

Is there a good alternative to Time Machine for doing backups of a mac? I am running Mac OS 10.7.4 and backing up to an external hard drive.

A month ago, my beloved work laptop running Linux gave up the ghost. My company gave me this shiny Macbook Pro to replace it. I've tried using Time Machine, but it's not as customizable as the backup program I was using on my Linux machine. In particular, I would like to be able to set it to
1) backup only once a day (or at whatever fixed interval I desire)
2) save only the last X backups (X based on a date/interval, like only keeping backups from the last month)
