48GX serial comms (Mac)
hi all,

I've just picked up a 48GX, which I'm liking very much; keyboard & screen seem much nicer look/feel than my 50g (which I also like, but the keys are so hard & clacky).

I've successfully transferred back and forth to my Mac via serial, but I wondered about “best practices,” in particular:

• XMODEM or Kermit? The manuals don't seem to express a preference, other than Kermit being the default.

I've read lots on conflicting guff on their various merits, which seems often to come down to implementation. What do people recommend I use, given I have an apparently capable serial app on the Mac that does both? Obviously I'd favour data integrity over performance.

• any tips on the best mechanism for a general calculator backup regime? On my 50g I use both the native ARCHIVE prog, and the ARCHIV prog, to create backups to flash & SD card (after a RCLF), and periodically dump the SD card onto my computer. What's good for the 48 via serial?

thanks very much indeed.

edit: removed question on transfer rate; didn't realise 9,600bps was the maximum
