If you're going to always be doing netsync, just do
in a background shell somewhere. Then you only have to hit "hotsync"
on the palm (cradle), and that's all!

You'll need a
ppp call tungsten;
too, as ppp will keep failing to start until the palm brings up it's
USB interface. Then it'll exit when the palm closes the PPP interface.

It should bring up the connection by itself... If you've set the
"connection" selection below the Big Hotsync button correctly.
It really IS all one-click, even with USB (after some work to get ppp
et. all working nice!).
