comment Can I create a socket file on mac?
Presumably you're missing the socket because mysqld either isn't running or isn't attempting to read from that socket. Creating it by hand isn't going to fix that.

comment Executing command via ssh not sourcing ~/.bashrc in Bash 4
Unfortunately I don't have Bash 4 installed anymore so I can't test this out (I'm now using Fish), but I have some recollection of trying exactly that and having it not work. From what I recall, the problem is the shell was being invoked as a non-interactive, non-login shell, so it wasn't sourcing any of the usual user-controlled init scripts.

comment Executing command via ssh not sourcing ~/.bashrc in Bash 4
Not applicable in my case. SSH is being run by another utility (specifically, git). I have no control over its invocation.

comment Using Git to Manage An iTunes Library?
The disk space issue isn't necessarily true. Granted, in the case of a music library, it probably is as MP3 files are already compressed, but in the general case a git repo can certainly be smaller than the set of checked-out files, as the git object graph is compressed in the repository.

If you have MobileMe, Apple finally released an iDisk app for the iPhone so you can transfer files that way.
