What Mac OS X software will let me scan things using my second hand Canon ImageRunner C5800
networked printer/scanner? There's PC software available, but I'd rather not have to run XP just to scan things. Note: if I sound clueless I am; if I'm missing something obvious then please tell me.

I've been looking for work for a little while, and have just come across position which would be ideal for me. It's an IT team leader role with an Engineering firm here in Brisbane (Australia), and I've applied for the role in the normal fashion (website / phone follow-up).
However, general advice seems to be that one has better luck networking one's way into a role, and in this instance I have the option to do so -- my father is a respected engineer, and (although they're not close mates) has known the COO, MD, and Chairman of the board for years, and has previously worked with them. The organisation doesn't have a CIO, so there's a good chance the IT function reports to the COO.
So, how could I use this information to my advantage? Or is the link too tenuous, and I should simply rely on the standard application process?

I am a novice mac lab manager. I was using the popular Netrestore
to roll out images to our mac lab. I discovered that the software has been discontinued, and furthermore it now breaks when I try to use it.
So I guess I need to know what the easiest alternative to Netrestore/firewire drives is for imagine our two labs. [more inside]

I've just downloaded the TPG Usage Meter
application to allow me to monitor from my desktop how much of my download quota (from my ISP) I still have available for the month.
As the application needs my username and password for my ISP I'm interested to see what data the application sends to the internet and to what hosts this data is sent. I've already tried using wireshark to see what is going on but from the overload of packets I'm getting very confused. Is there someway to filter the capture by process?
Otherwise, is there some other tool that would be better suited for the job?

I'm looking for inspiration on how to reduce computer clutter. I run a lot of machines and make them do a lot of cool things, but in a 92sqm apartment where we're also trying to manage massive DVD, magazine, and book libraries, and where my previous work station (which was never all that orderly) has been conquered by my girlfriend's rampaging makeup and sewing stuff, it ain't easy. I want to compartmentalize, organize, and speed up the process of accessing my stuff. Ideas? [more inside]

I have a new pc hooked up and it gets the Internet all the time, no problem checking e-mail, surfing or pinging anything on the WWW.
However, I have intermittent problems remotely logging into that machine, either via ssh or vnc. If I ping the machine for long intervals of time, I've seen packet loss of around 90%.
Does anybody have a good idea of where to start diagnosing this problem?

I need to connect two computers that are located on separate networks. There are two things i'd like to be able to do:
1. Transfer files between the two computers.
2. Install Synergy, so that i can control both PCs with one keyboard and mouse.
I can't install a second NIC in each PC, but i am willing to try maybe a USB NIC.
Both PCs are running XP.
