comment URL to PDF conversion on OS X
I normally wouldn't comment on such an old post, but this one was a relatively high result when I googled for "url to pdf" so I thought it was worth mentioning: 'convert' is no longer part of Mac OS X 10.8 but you can get much of the same thing accomplished with cupsfilter (part of OS X) but the args are different. Most notably, it takes one file as an arg, and sends its output to stdout, so you have to redirect to a file if you want to save to PDF. Hope this helps someone else.

+1 for answering the question. I shuffle files across my home LAN and don't need SFTP for that. Anything going across the Internet obviously uses SFTP.

What is the expected outcome of the 'setfile' command? When I run it on an empty file with no extension (created via touch) there is no output, but Finder shows the file as a 'Sidebar DropBox folder icon" which makes me think that setfile is working on Lion (10.7.1) for me.

? It is a proxy service that you could run on the Mac and have the other devices connect through, and it is simpler to setup that squid (or was last time I tried squid).
