Um, dude, the bottleneck is the DSL, not SSH. ;-)

I have a few photos here made with a Nikon D3X (24MP). I currently don't
have to RAW files on this machine because they are stuffed away in the
Archive. Saved as a TIFF (with 8 bits per channel), a typical file has
59MB (LZW) or 45MB (same photo, just used ZIP as compression). I think
you can imagine, how big the RAW files are.

Moving 10, 20 or more of them over a DSL with only 1MBit/s upstream
isn't any fun - at all.


I came.
I went.
And I was there.
