Upgrade, Damn You

My FTP client has served me faithfully for a long time (WS_FTP LE). However, I've noticed that, for some reason, it won't connect to discordian's file server. This is annoying, since we do quite a bit of transfers, back and forth. This finally came to a head this morning, with a video clip that he wanted.

I could even get there through browser FTP connections, but not my FTP client (which, note, would connect to anything else, just not his server). in the end, the best I can figure is that it doesn't seem to like the DNS redirect that gets to his server. A little more looking reminds me that this is, to put it mildly, antiquated software (as in it's version 5, and Ipswitch just released version 9). Since they no longer offer a free version, and I'm not paying $35 for an FTP client, it was time to kiss it goodbye.

Luckily, just this morning, I was turned on to FileZilla, which works absolutely ducky. Time to move on...
