John, I have not tried this, but you could probably pick up an device
for the office machine, if they will let you install it. Your portable
already has an IR port. then the transfers could be made at a very high
speed. That will give you instant disconnect and connect, with one less
cable to brake and lose. (just a thought)


There are few situations in life that cannot be resolved
promptly, and to the satisfaction of all concerned,
by either suicide, a bag of gold,
or thrusting a despised antagonist over a precipice on a dark night.
