Even at home I noticed that copying large files over wireless via SMB is much slower than copying them over an SSHFS mount (getting previously unseen transfer rates, actually). However, the SMB mount is more responsive when exploring files.
In my experience, protocol can matter a lot.
Right now I think it's a big speculation game. There's a big risk in investing lots of money into bitcoin but with a potentially huge payoff.

With all the public firings that have gone on, remind me, what's the benefit of having a twitter account again?
Pros: being able to tell millions of people what you're doing.
Cons: saying something stupid to millions of people and suffering the consequences.
Provocative comments should elicit provocative debates, and people should be allowed to change how they feel about a subject. It's not as if he godwin'd his twitter feed. As tweet-related firings ripple through the media, I can see people gravitating towards more watered-down statements and PR-speak, which is kind of unfortunate.
