comment Moving the swapfiles to a dedicated partition in Snow Leopard
@LaurentCrivello: That's an intriguing idea, but are you sure it is really working? (see details in my note #1) dynamic_pager tends to silently fall back to using /private/var/vm if the target partition has not been mounted yet. I'm not 100% sure how symbolic links work under those conditions.

Is there any way to do this without having local administrator access? My IT department locks things down pretty heavily

Your suggestion to use -print0 and xargs -0 worked beautifully. Thank you!

+1, but will that preserve the directory structure? I'm trying not to preserve that structure. i.e. export should contain no subdirectories, just a big list of files

comment How can I work around a locked down desktop image in Windows XP?
That certainly worked for login, which is awesome, but it doesn't work for unlock.
