comment Send to Gmail windows 7
From what I've heard, Affixa (affixa.com/download) is the new gAttach. It works the same way -- you can use the "Send To > Mail Recipient" windows explorer menu to create a gmail draft and attach the file(s).

comment rsync: archiving over ssh
@Eroen I have to transmit the backups over a relatively slow and costly (per GB) Internet connection, so differential updates to the backup are a requirement. I haven't tried tarballing the whole kaboodle as you say because I suspect it will consume more bandwidth than if I rsync the files directly. Can you comment on whether my suspicion is correct or not?

@BartvanHeukelom The top-ranked answer at the serverfault.com question works for me. Should I have copied thkala's answer to this thread?

comment Windows File Sharing - Long Initial Delay
If I leave the network share alone for a few minutes, when I come back I experience a ~ 3 second delay. That's probably what you are talking about above, and it's fine by me. But it seems to be a separate issue, since I sometimes have to wait for a full 60 seconds.

comment Windows File Sharing - Long Initial Delay
I changed the timeout to 1 minutes using net config server /autodisconnect:1 on computer A, closed all network windows on computer B, waited 3 minutes, and then open up the share again and edited some of the files, with no significant delay. Is this a conclusive test that whatever is causing the >60 second delay is not authentication, or would I need to completely shut off computer B for few minutes to be absolutely sure?

I just measured it at 65 seconds.
