The reason I was wondering about the speed is that I've been having some
trouble with MadMax pausing when I play MP3s over e'net and I wondered if
the speed was an issue. 1kB/s seems v/slow to me when I think that rs-232
on the Newt will happily do ~3.6 kB/Sec.

It's an MP3. The idea was to download it using FTP and get MaxMax to play
it. Fortunately it's on an external card. Is there a way to seek and kill
it on the card?
