In order to spare George from getting any nastygrams (or extra charges), I
just set up an anonymous ftp server on my system.  Please don't abuse it.
ftp in to navaid.tzo.com.  Log in as anonymous or ftp, and give your email
address as the password.

I only have the two files mentioned above on there in the /pub directory, and
I've taken off write access so you can't upload anything either.

This is run over my cable modem, so don't all hit it at once, ok?
