USB tethering with the Mac

I am in the train to Cork today, and being two and a half hours trip I am using the time to work a bit in my Fabric scripts.

Something I usually do is to get updates and packages form the Internet, and while the wifi connection in the train is good for browsing, getting updates is slowing it to a crawl.

I realised that the USB tethering connection with my phone was not recognised by the Mac, and have to download a driver for it, which worked very well after a reset.

The code is in github, together with a compiled package too.
