Or, much more simply... what if you just pile the whole tree into an archive, copy that across, and then unpack it on the other side, leaving the archiver app to deal with the excessive tree :)

Um yeah, zip utilities generally crash on pathname too long. (i've already got that t-shirt)

Hmm. magic increment. I will continue to investigate. Thanks for the suggestions.

[perldigious]: Hmm, thanks Lotus1... perldigious scribbles note to buy lots of opossums as "pets" in the future to hang around outside his property. :-P
[1nickt]: You must twist and pull! If you burn, use tea tree oil etc, the tick barfs (inside your blood vessel) and you get all the loevely bacteria in his gut transferred to yours.
[1nickt]: tweesers work just fine
[hippo]: Hope everyone else is enjoying their lunch too.
[1nickt]: However, note that it takes between 2 and 4 hours for a tick to be able to start transmitting bacteria. So even if it has burrowed in and started eating, if you get it soon you should be OK.
[perldigious]: 1nickt: No more red meat! It would be more humane to just kill you, wouldn't it! :-)
[1nickt]: Just don't make it barf.
[1nickt]: perldigious that's exactly what my stepson says.
[1nickt]: the tick that can make you a vegetarian
[perldigious]: Your Mother: Yeah, I have a tool for ticks that I use (mostly on my dogs thankfully), but it's just a cheapo one I got from my vets office... it works pretty good though.
