(Darned web interface! Darned typos!)

In point #8 you mention that you synchronize your laptop and desktop. How? Something built into Panther? I haven't seen such a feature listed at Apple's Panther Preview web pages. Given Apple's insistence that this is the "Year of the Laptop," I would have expected them to do more to integrate things like file synchronization, but as far as I can tell they have not.

Rant over, I still would like to know which software you use (and/or recommend) for synchronizing across Macs. (I hope you don't say an iDisk -- while it may work for some people, that is not feasible for my situation.)

Thanks in advance.

    use rsync + ssh + rendezvous. imagine you have two machines, laptop.local and desktop.local, from laptop you can synch with desktop while on the same link:

    rsync -e ssh -r /Users/name/ desktop.local:/Users/name
    rsync -e ssh -r desktop.local:/Users/name/ /Users/name

    or from desktop while laptop is on the same link:

    rsync -e ssh -r /Users/name/ laptop.local:/Users/name
    rsync -e ssh -r laptop.local:/Users/name/ /Users/name
