I'm going to skip all the DNS stuff, because savvy and Ron and people

problems I just handwave and get savvy to sort them out ;)

Use ssh, and ssh's sftp method. It's perfectly well supported under
Windows using PuTTY (go thou to Google). FTP is old hat and insecure.
Don't do it. Especially if you're talking about having some kind of
home box doing this. Fizzy would be in fits...

You could pay me a little bit of money and I can host everything for
you on angel...


Two things I learned for sure during a particularly intense acid trip
in my own lost youth: (1) everything is a trivial special case of
something else; and, (2) death is a bunch of blue spheres.
