Agreed. OT-Technical and OT-Gaming are definitely worth keeping around even if they're moved to an archive instead of being pruned after the specified time.

Yep, that's the one. Scan in A4 lumps then stitch together to whatever size is needed. I needed to scan some large posters and documents back in the day and that was the only way to do it.

Which TCP stack are you running? MiamiDX doesn't handle directories well no matter which ftp program you use, it is a known bug. AmiTCP has no problems though and I don't think Roadshow does either.
