What I do is make use of the .Mac option (under system
preferences/.mac/iDisk) to make my iDisk manually syncable. Then, I
can use my iDisk even if I am not connected to the internet. As I
see fit, I click on the sync symbol next to my iDisk icon in any
finder window, to update the remote iDisk info. Advantages: 1)
speed: all access to the iDisk (except when syncing) is local. 2) you
can arrange to do this on multiple computers (although I wouldn't
recommend it), 3) you only connect directly to your .mac account when
you desire to; indeed, it serves as an archive in the case of local
crashes. As I routinely move between my usual day to day high-speed
wireless world (university, home) and my at best noisy dial-up at my
cottage in the mountains, this ``work local---sync manually''
approach works best. Indeed, my co-authors around the globe have
access to the same files and folders, so co-authoring works almost
