Great article with a couple of terminal commands that add some great functionality to Screen Sharing. I've tested them all and they work brilliantly.

Niice. It's like Apple Remote Desktop 3... included in the System.

Oh wait, ARD does remote installations and can control multiple screens at once. Either this means ARD is gonna become significantly cheaper... or it's going to get a hellava load more features.

The toolbar tip looks like it could be handy.
Personally though, to connect to remote machines, I prefer hitting cmd-k in Finder, then typing: vnc://ComputerName.local Then adding it to the favourites there. Saves me from adding yet another application to my Dock. :)

this is really great! a lot of these are simple features in ARD but ARD can still be used to perform remote system updates and repairs

I love the quality slider. Often when I'm out and about I want to get back to my Mac Pro and check on a piece of information. I seldom care about the picture quality, I just want speed.
