I ran across MacFUSE a few weeks ago. I read the instructions for compiling it and I didn’t think it was worth the effort. I recently found out that there are compiled versions and the instructions are in the Quicker Start Guide. The sshfs application comes in extremely handy especially when used with my favorite editor. I know this has been blogged about already, but I just ran across it. Make sure you checkout the video with some interesting ideas on how to use MacFUSE.
