FTP HBD Archive Is Back Online

The g-zipped ftp-connected archives are back online. ftp://hbd.org will take you there. I kept the same structure pretty much as was on the old server – digests are stored in annual folders, and the path is pub-hbd->digests->{Year of interest}. I did make one change for “presentation:” I added a hyphen to the start of the index files names so that they always appear at the top of the list.

  1. I’m unable to download any of the files on the FTP site. I think you might have the permissions incorrect for anonymous access.

    Here’s the output of one example:

    Status: Starting download of /software/beercalc.xls
    Command: PASV
    Response: 227 Entering Passive Mode (173,236,141,123,128,23).
    Command: RETR beercalc.xls
    Response: 550 beercalc.xls: Operation not permitted
    Error: Critical file transfer error

    1. Yup – I’m getting the same thing. I will look into the vagaries of Dreamhost’s anonymous ftp system (it’s not as straightforward as the one I ran on the old HBD servers) to get this resolved.
