Well, for me the offline usage and delayed mode of working are the big pros for an ml. Having to pay internet access by the minute does not encourage usage of chats. The one time I peeked into a chat, "stupid" seemed to be the word to describe the communication going on, seemed not to be worthwhile to try again.

Yup, sometimes, if I later on think my previous words weren't all that clear - I'm not sure my comment was an improvement, though :-)

Well, I'm syncing quite regularly at the moment, and I seem to get conference messages all right. But most of my files show the "not in sync" red. I renamed my 'developer dir this morning (A tip sent by Carl, at a time someone mentioned exactly the same problem) - after some time of syncing I had a look again, and I got "file is different locally" again. (I had "file is missing locally" before, so I guess the respective file had been synced, then. This is link, the latest I know about. Where should I look for up to date files? Kind regards, Ingo
