So, this ftp program I use in Windows (Filezilla -- it's the best I've seen) will randomly send various commands to keep the connection alive. One of them is "TYPE A". Simple enough, send a pointless command.
So, here I am looking through the suse ftp directories trying to decide what to transferr when I see Filezilla send that command, and the server's responce: "You don't want an ASCII transfer". heheheh..
These are also the same people who put "Have a lot of fun." at the end of almost every document, and as part of the login script.
