OK, that’s a bit short as a summary...


Quote:As FTP sites stop being indexed, accessed, or usable in browsers, people also start running out of reasons to keep them operating. Many of the most valuable FTP sites for me are ones that are historical relics, and apparently survive primarily on benign neglect. Their contents are highly unlikely to be moved to HTTP sites; instead it's more likely that the contents will be discarded entirely.

A quality thought, in my opinion.
Wow, that's something new.
Quote:As a sysadmin and someone who periodically goes digging for old documentation, I have some feelings and worries about this.

I can't agree more, there's a lot of documentation and specification that I still fetch over FTP.
