comment Print a huge SVG
Hiya, could you elaborate any more on what to do within InkScape please? I have a large svg (width="6137pt" height="3092pt") which no mater what I do, either comes out very small on one page, or only prints 1 page of it full size! Cheers.

comment Call putty/plink to start a remote SSH linux script with user input
And re OpenSSH via Cygwin or MinGW, would be nice, but this is a portable upgrade script, of which I can ship putty/plink binaries with the scripts, which tho not imposable with Cygwin (no idea about MinGW) is slightly harder to create portable versions of (or so I believe, anyway im going off-topic..)
