letrole: nat friendly? say what? side effect of network topology? say what?

I made the assumption that the person setting up the FTP server and firewall wasn't a complete idiot. I dont know that you are trying to say by "NAT friendly" but as long as either you configure your port forward in your firewall retains the source IP of the incoming dst 21/TCP connection so your server can open a new outbound data connection to that IP on src 20/TCP *or* your firewall is halfway decent and can statefully associate the two ports used by FTP into a single communication your FTP server will work fine.
That said, it is common practice for private companies to disallow various types of internet communications based on their needs and wants.


So you're suggesting somebody too dumb to choose passive FTP from the client settings should setup and run something esoteric like SCP. It's a shame you wasted all that technocrocity to make such a useless point.


Wow. That was even less relevant than usual.

Oh, now you're going to tell me that the jet stream is related to climate?  Nice try libs.

Repo Man: Isaac Asimov once said "The purpose of crying doom is to avert it." No one wants AGW to be true (though it would serve some of the denialist crowd right), but if it is happening, and we are causing it, it's the responsibility of those who dedicate their lives to to the thankless task of studying the climate to get the word out. If we choose to do nothing to slow or stop it, at least they did their best to warn us.

Farking Canuck:

While I suspect the first half of your post is not exactly genuine, I will give it a shot.

You seem to have mistaken me for someone who changes the color of my text. I was merely saying that a single occurrence of a phenomenon was not indicative of a pattern.

The press will run with any extremist story so you really should ignore anything in the press.

Just because it's true doesn't mean I'm wrong to complain about it. You can point to a myriad of reasons--from the blindingly obvious to conspiracy theories--why science literacy is on the decline in the US. I will assert (and quite hypocritically, I'll do it with no evidence or data) that a measurable percentage of blame can be assigned to the fact that people who don't understand math or science so often end up as journalists and K-8 teachers, because their programs don't require them. My wife is a kindergarten teacher, and she fails to understand the most basic features of the solar system...like which bodies orbit which, why they do so, and which bodies are farther away than others. Electricity? Weather? Magnets? Television? A simple budget? All beyond her grasp. She is also smarter and more intellectually curious than most of her coworkers. Think on that and despair.

Gentoolive: I like the jargon change from global warming to climate change. Guess we gotta make sure we keep a crisis going.


There has been no jargon change - Global warming and climate change are different things and we are talking about different things. Global warming is when the temperature, averaged over the whole planet, over the whole year goes up from one year to the next, or has an upward trend. This is a GLOBAL value. Climate change is when the long term weather patterns (and thus the plants and animals that can survive there) in a specific area changes. This is a LOCAL variable. Global warming drives climate change.

Being ignorant and not learning the vocabulary before you talk only makes you look stupid. It doesn't hurt Al Gore at all.

Coming on a Bicycle: Today, in my part of the world, it was farking spring. Clear skies, warm breeze - we went to the park all day. Of course, last year around this time, we had thirty centimeters of snow.


Centimeters?? Go back to Celisusvania comrade!!

Well, as a positive benefit on climate change, this winter has been absolutely beautiful in FL this year.  We've had a few nice chilly days to remind us that different seasons exist, but it hasn't dipped below freezing (well, at least here) to endanger any of the landscaping or crops.

Plus, my AC has had to run a lot less.  My electric bill was only $45 last month, that's a little more than half of the normal winter level and a fifth of the normal summer level.

Of course, the downside is if this shiat keeps up eventually the ice caps are going to melt and my house is going to be under water, so hopefully the storms up north keep driving folks south so I can sell it for a nice profit and move to a higher elevation before that happens.
