Transferring files between computers has become a trivial task. Web, FTPs or SSH servers are common in nowadays computers. However, sometimes those standard services are not right there and you need to fallback to more basic transfer solutions which, anyway, are a lot cooler than an FTP or SSH server.
Let's introduce 4 unorthodox (and cool) ways to transfer files in case you are in a emergency. I had used all of them in some special situations, so I will give some examples on situations where they had been useful for me.

Learning GSM, cracking it
If you have been following this tutorial, you should have a fully functional NULLCape. Probably, you would also be thinking: "Yes, that's right, but this NULLCape is useless". And you are completely right... However, this can be easily improved with just some wires... Keep reading to know how.

Recently I came through the need to access data in some equipment using some fancy mobile device. Normally, a laptop would be connected to the equipment using a serial cable and data extracted through the file dumping capabilities of Hyperterminal. This is a pretty standard situations to retrieve data from some equipment as, even nowadays, serial ports are pretty common on certain domains.
