Something Fishy is Happening Here

Tue, Feb 11, 2003 with tags old

Now both my desktop at school and my desktop at home have KDE-3.1 (at home it was thanks to apt for redhat). I was going to set up some NFS stuff to share my files at home with my computer at school, but that is sorta a pain. I’ve discovered that KDE 3.1 has a very cool ioslave called fish. With fish you can type fish:// and get access to the file. It even allows for browsing of the file and everything. Overall it is very cool.

(yes, I know that emacs has had something similar with tramp mode for a very long time…I’ve used tramp mode, and it works pretty slick to, but that’s just emacs; whereas a KDE ioslave can be used in any kde app)
