It would be nice if Bitsavers' host allowed anonymous FTP. One of the
inferior things that Web browsers do, in my view, is date-stamp a
downloaded file with today's date rather than the date from the host. I
have to use wget to download files via http if I want correct time stamps.
Jay, would you consider enabling anonymous FTP access to bitsavers.org?
