Re: [NTLK] Installing packages via WiFi?

I use Escale (see Woody's link) on my MacBook Pro to install packages
on my MessagePad 2100 over WiFi (using my Buffalo/Melco card) and it
works quite well. It crashes frequently and definitely is more stable
on PowerPC Macs than Intel Macs, but for installing packages it's fine.

I also occasionally use BlueTooth File Exchange (included with Mac OS
X) to install small packages (and very frequently to transfer text,
vCard, and iCal files) over BlueTooth using my Pico card. It's almost
completely stable (so much so that I never think about it), but too
slow for doing anything but small packages (so definitely not useful
for books).

Hope that helps. I'd be glad to answer additional questions if you
have them.
