I've been meaning to set up an FTP since I first joined EAB, whenever that was. So, after seeing this thread, I set about putting a server together using an old PC I had lying around. I put a new 250GB drive in it, a Firewire card and a wireless card, and it didn't work - whenever I copied a file to the main drive from an external Firewire drive it crashed. So, I spent nearly £200 building a new computer to use as a dedicated FTP/database/web server. Put it together, copied a file over from the Firewire drive - it crashed again. Turns out that the £10 Firewire card is dodgy.
Anyway, I'm still working on putting the server together. If anyone's interested, have a look here:
I've only got 256Kb up, so don't expect miracles, and there isn't much on the server yet. It should be up most of the time (this is the reason for getting a dedicated box).
If anyone wants to upload anything, PM me and I'll create an upload account for you.
Note that this is still a test, so don't be surprised if the server suddenly vanishes.
