Wireless Fun

Apparently transferring hordes of small files (14MB total) to an embedded device via ethernet emulated over Bluetooth (up to 300ms ping) is a slow process. Who would have thought? Next time I need to bother using the USB connection, ethernet emulated over USB is so much faster.

On a side note, is there anything that ethernet isn’t emulated over?

I’m doing my third ethernet-over-Blutooth transfer now, why do I punish myself like this? Is doing it remotely from another room really that much of a bonus?

Remotely = ssh session to the machine in the other lab that the Gumstix have their Bluetooth connection to. It’s quite fun to ssh into that machine and then use that to ssh into the ‘stix, though the latency starts getting very noticable.
