I ussed Migration Assistant to try and move files from my old MacBook Proaptop to my new MacBook Air using an ethernet cable.  The message of two minutes remaining was in place for over 33 hours.  Is that normal?  What is the situation with Mirgration Assistant?  How long should I let it run?  How can I easily migrate my data from the old to the new machine?

MacBook Air, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), from an Mac Book Pro 10.6.8
