Confirmation of Nathan's passing

slothdog Crap (4 comments)

Man, that is so not the kind of thing I wanted to see when I peeked in here. I've been there far too recently, and it totally sucks. I wish I had something to say, but words just can't help this kind of thing. Hang in there.

"And can it be that in a world so full and busy, the loss of one weak creature makes a void in any heart, so wide and deep that nothing but the width and depth of vast eternity can fill it up!"

slothdog writes "The Windows command-line FTP client has a -s argument that lets you specify a text file containing ftp commands for it to run. The Mac (10.4.7) version doesn't appear to have such a thing. What's the best way to feed it a series of commands?

(Background: I have a PHP script I use to update the songs on my station, which generates a text file of FTP commands. Then I ssh in and run "ftp -s:ftpcmds.txt" and sit back as it logs in, deletes old stuff, and uploads new stuff.)"

  • ul
  • li
  • dl
  • dt
