A set of scripts to create email links to movies

/usr/local/bin/maillink '/Volumes/Mac160FULL/Pictures/Digital Camera Photos/Raw pix in from camera/Raw Movies/MVI_0013.AVI' && exit || kill `ps $$ -o[iMac17:~] mymacid% /usr/local/bin/maillink '/Volumes/Mac160FULL/Pictures/Digital Camera Photos/Raw pix in from camera/Raw Movies/MVI_0013.AVI' && exit || kill `ps $$ -o ppid=
I don't know for sure what that is about. Did you use the install.sh script or copy and paste things into editors? My hunch is that this part of a line in the applescript got munged:
 && exit || kill `ps $$ -o ppid=`"
You could run the maillink script from the command line to see if my hunch is right and that error disappears. The comment above that line explains what the point of that line is. Another possibility is that the continuation characters in the maillink bourne shell script got munged. Those are there in the little snippet of apple script that opens Mail.app with a new message.

As to the error that scared you more it seems, there are two things to that. First you may have your dns not configured properly as scp is failing with that early on. If you have 10.4.x (I don't) I think there was a hint about that on this site relating to ssh. The other bit about that, well I have the option -o 'StrictHostKeyChecking yes' with the scp command. It is supposed to do this very thing if the keys have changed. I did this precisely so my wife would get scared and ask me for help if that happened. This can happen for completely innocent reasons, say for example someone reinstalls a system and does not backup the old keys.

I hope this alleviates your concerns.
