I took several long videos (25 - 50 minutes each) with the camera on my new iPad, and now I would like to transfer them to my Macbook, so that I can convert them to .avi files and give them to a friend. Dropbox will not upload them ('upload pending' forever). Backing up the iPad results in many folders with random numbers, none of which look big enough to be the videos. What should I try next?

Are there any better tools for transferring about a terabyte of files over a local network than just dragging and dropping in Windows? Specifically, is there a tool that can pick up and double-check files once they've been copied over? [more inside]

I'm looking at an efficient way to distribute large files to multiple computers over my lan, I need to know how to do this and whats involved. I was thinking that since I have a dedicated server in my home that hosting the files via private lan'd bit torrent would be the weapon of choice as the file transfer speed increases exponentially.
My server is running a version of ubuntu so whatever software I will need must run in ubuntu. The clients downloading the files will probably be running windows boxes so Utorrent can be used and would be preferred. Are there any specific things that I need to turn on in Utorrent to do this via lan or will it essentially be seamless as long as the tracker is my server? [more inside]

I have some Macintosh-formatted floppy disks from the 1990s. They
contain data I would like to have (old writing, Quicken files, etc.).
Leaving aside issues of media integrity, how do I transfer these to a
modern Mac. I have no access to Mac floppy drive of any kind. I do
have access to PCs with floppy drives. But, of course, under normal
circumstances a PC doesn't recognize a Mac-formatted disk. How do
I get my data from these floppies to my MacBook Pro?

I've got a mac and a PC sharing the same desk, both on a 802.11g network, but file transfer between the two is atrociously slow, like only a couple hundred kb/sec. Is there any way to transfer lots of data quickly between the two (like several Mb/sec)? A crossover ethernet cable between the two? USB? Firewire?

FTP on TCP over IP
: As far as i can see, ftp should transfer files perfectly. If you trace the responsibility for validation through the relevant RFCs everything should be handled by the TCP checksum. Yet "everyone" knows that ftp regularly transfers corrupt files. Why? More generally, where is a good forum for discussing this kind of thing (I'm also interested in, for example, multiple parallel ftps (eg gridftp) and the possibility of checking an "instantaneous" checksum value at various points during transfer to detect errors as soon as possible)?
