yea, VIM is grand and all that, and yea, i should probably spend more time learning that, but if you are copy pasting stuff from a web page, or tweaking code, i would really prefer to be using a local text editor... doesent matter what editor, in all fairness, but any editor, as apposed to the white text on black background with very little color formatting, etc... plus, if you are on a slower connection, editing on a termainl is SLOW... if you took the file locally for edit, and then just saved, it would be a lot less pain...

i agree... using VIM, Nano, etc, on the remote machine is all well and good... and using git for pushing files remotely is all well and good also, but editing the apache config file remotely using VIM or Nano or Emacs or what ever, is a little more painful that using your local text editor, like Notepad++ or TextMate...

So, rmate, from reading a bit about it, seems to be a client/server setup: when you are SSHed into a box, you type rmate <filename> the "client" (machine your SSHed into) connects to your "Server" (workstation) and sends the contents of the file. Modern SFTP clients will make this easier, but its an extra application you need to work on. If you are in a terminal, and you want to edit a file, you need to open Cyberduck, find the file, edit it, save it, etc... as apposed to typing <magic editor> <file name> and a editor window pops up...

comment Downloading Images From a Colorspace UDMA to Lightroom Running Under Mac OSX Lion
If you open Disk Utility, and then plug in the device, can you see a new drive show up? if so, what does it say about it? Do you have another machine (Non OSX) you could try it on?

I think, but could be wrong, that the GSM dialup standard (if there is such a thing) could have some sort of check sum code to make sure that if your data is garbled, it will re-transmit it... you, in theory, wont actually loose anything, but it may be a lot slower... I have also noticed this effect on Vodafone Ireland, and some of the other networks here too...
