Staples "Relay (tm)" 4 Gb USB sticks - slow or normal (lenny)?
I keep one copy of my latest backup on usb sticks that I keep in my
pack. Yesterday, I recreated it. It's an ext2 ptn:
/dev/sdb1 on /media/usb0 type ext2 (rw,noexec,nodev,sync,noatime)
That happens when I plug it in (udev?).

I plugged it in at 17:13, started the copy minutes later, and it took
until 03:43 to finish, which is pretty sucky. CD copies take like ten

Is it just that usb's slow, or is the box doing it wrong? Is it my
preference for ext2? I've tried w both usb hubs and directly into
laptop; same, same.
This's on a HP Pavilion dv4 AMD-64.
Any technology distinguishable from magic is insufficiently advanced.
