comment faster way to mount a remote file system than sshfs?
@Sparhawk there's a difference between throughput and latency. FUSE gives you pretty high latency because it has to check the filesystem state a lot using some pretty inefficient means. arcfour gives you good throughput because the encryption is simpler. In this case latency is most important because that's what causes the editor to be slow at listing and loading files.

It's not slow because of the encryption, it's slow because it's FUSE and it keeps checking the file system state.

comment Toggle “ask for password after screensaver/sleep” or the delay in 10.7 using terminal
How are you sure that it's not simply the rebooting that did the trick? Loginwindow handles the screen saver stuff and it's a big ball of nasty that always gets these sorts of bugs, like not reading plist files after login.

comment Easy way of daemonizing in CentOS 5.4
Simply closing stdin and backgrounding works as well: myprog 1<&- &. Now you have a daemon.
