    great app

    I always go the other way, share a folder on the host PC and then use Astro SMB to access the shared folder over wifi.

    Best thing is that using Astro doesn't need root.

    I've found using an FTP server on the PC works faster than any SMB shares. Works great over wifi, and using a VPN remotely works great too.

    Excellent.. Thank you for this..

    Ray, help me refresh my memory please. Wasn't this here the case where defendant did not even appear in the slightest? (was this here the "sewer service" case where the server nailed the papers on a door of a homeless guy or wasn't it?) And it was the Judge that did all the normally required procedural thingies on her own without that defendant having any say. So was there in the meantime any interaction of defendant with court or plaintiffs so that we can give the Plaintiffs the benefit of doubt that their withdrawal "each party pays itself" was not only some one sided decision by them alone?

    I ask because I find it strange that Evil4 can throw in the towel on their own saying without that defendant might have had the opportunity to say no to the throw. (OK, it might be in the interest of defendant that the case is gone, but non the less, Where I to be sued and might not even know that I were, I would not want Plaintiffs to be able to "run away" and I might face some monetary demands some times later from the judiciary or some private guys that want money for some "services" on behalf of plaintiffs. In german civil law we have the rule that "loser pays" the cost of the other party and not only its own, thats why I ask.
