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.

UN: conlang
PW: conl

FTP host:  ( 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!
