IP over Firewire Updated

Ponty Re:Gigabit ethernet versus firewire (101 comments)

First, there's rendezvous. Second, I hate (hate!) rebooting my machines. It's a major pain in the ass. I use lots of programs, have lots of windows open, keep lots of terminal sessions active. Rebooting and re-establishing my previous state is a massive pain in the butt. Target disk mode is right for some things, but usually not the best solution.
