X11forwarding on Mac OS X
I am currently sitting in a position where the only way to get internet is through a mobile connection. This means that large downloads often are not possible because of the connection drops.
I needed to download a 500 mb file from RapidShare, that does not allow resuming of download after a connection drop (at least not for non-paying users). My idea was to let my server download the file and to let me download it afterwards with resuming.
The only problem was: The captcha since my server isn’t running a graphical user interface.
I found a program called Plowshare, that can download from a lot of download-websites, and send the Captcha image to my computer through the X11 connection.
