I just got my computer acting as an FTP server.
I will set it up for you people to be able to FTP to it directly.
FTP host: 188.8.131.52 ( port 21 )
The window will be open for about one week. ( as of March 5, 2001 ).
When I say Window, I mean, that I will have my FTP server software running
for that long, non-stop.
Please, if you can, don't hack my box!
