Software Update via another computer?
is it possible to do a software update on a computer which isn't connected to the internet?
(it can connect sometimes… very spotty and slow service though)
basically seeing if its possible to (easily) obtain a list from that computer then download the stuff onto my laptop at a different location… then transfer the DLs and install..

Never tried it without an Internet connection, but the software update caching feature of OS X Server may be what you're looking for. It essentially lets your mac ask another Mac on the network for updates, and that Mac keeps a cache of available updates for faster updating when you choose to do so. It should work for what you need.
