If you tend to punt a lot of files round the net via ftp
like I seem to a nice ftp client is essential. For reasons of sheer laziness (hey! check the domain name) I've been using some software I picked up free for a few years now (I didn't copy it off a friend - honest). After reading the fine Mr.Ritilan
's run down on the open source
software he uses though, I thought I'd try out Filezilla
when I was kitting out the X40
After about 3 weeks of usage I have absolutely no complaints and it's all 100% free and legal (not that I'm suggesting my previous arrangement wasn't). I've set up the 3 main servers I use and have been downloading and uploading to my heart's content. I'm sure there are very helpful help files but I haven't had cause to use them yet - it's so logical there's no need - it makes ftp-ing as simple as it should be. Highly recommended.

Here in the UK we all learn metric meaures at school (even an oldster like me did), but we like to mix things up a little by sticking to imperial weights and measures irl. The beeb
have a nice article
today with view-points from both imperial and metric camps, along with, as always, entertaining comments from the public which make interesting reading. Personally I'm all for going metric, but having said that I'll always order a 'pint' rather than a half litre (even
if the second is bigger).
Just as one Olympics ends you start seeing droolworthy
graphics of the venue for the the next one. "The Water Cube will be one of the most dramatic and exciting venues to feature sporting events for the Beijing Olympics in 2008
". Very cool, although I can't quite work out if the walls will be filled with water, or just made to look like they will. Nice either way if the animation is anything to go by.
