On even a very slow network a diff could take no longer over the WAN than locally. When we switched to duplicated repositories in Sydney and Manchester I noticed absolutely NO difference in the speed of a diff and the overall speed of our link is little better than dial-up. If your diffs are taking a long time you need to follow the same procedure I outlined for Carsten - investigate why the diffs are slow (both technical and procedural). I know that by introducing the 'sync' solution many people will use it as a bandaid to 'fix' a problem that could have been fixed with far less effort themselves - but that's just human nature, eg: rather than learning how to drive more economically we'll by a battery powered car which cost billions of dollars to develop because it provides instant gratification and requires no behaviour modification. That doesn't make the person 'wrong' or 'bad' or the battery powered car 'wrong' or 'bad' - it's just life and I'll go on saying that there was nothing wrong with the first car and people will continue to ignore me ;) Regards, Arthur Barrett
