It's slowish, but not terrible..
Yes, I could put them on a CF card and transfer as needed, but it's just much easier to not do the sneakernet approach.
Of course, I have PCMCIA ethernet, not USB. I've gone back and forth on getting USB and have not been able to justify it.
But I'm glad people are working on it.
I didn't realize that WHDLoad and the USB stack didn't like each other.
Same reason you need to stop your networking stack, I assume?
Good info there..
For me it's IRC and Aminet :-)
I also browse the mobile Amibay and EAB sites.
