Graphical SCP to and from /bigtmp/

So, although I prefer to use the command line, I realize that for some, pointing and clicking is an easier way to do things.  It is for these folks that this post is written.
SCP is simply a protocol for copying files securely from one networked machine to another.  The command line is to my mind the simplest way to execute this protocol, but there are other ways as well.

For those who wish to use a point-and-click interface, there's fugu for the mac:

or FileZilla for mac, windows, or linux:

Since I don't personally use either of these much (though I have used them occasionally in the past), I won't go into a tutorial here- but as they are both open source projects, google will surely help if you need guidance.  Happy clicking!
