Fourth day of snow! It was still snowing very lightly in the morning. Then it stopped. Now, after midnight, it's snowing again. One wonders how many municipalities around here have already exceeded their snow-clearing budgets.

Since xydexx has confirmed that FTP uploading has been enabled for Anthrocon 2004 conbook submissions, I spent part of the evening looking through my folders of comic strips for suitable material. The theme for this year's Anthrocon is “Summer Games”. Now, I'm not very much into sports so I figured I have at most one comic that would fit the theme. It turns out I have a few. And a lot more depending on how you stretch the theme. (e.g. non-Olympic sports, non-sport outdoor games, non-summer games, etc) Of course, there's also this drawing, which has already been printed in the 1999 conbook so I won't be sending it in again.

Speaking of FTP, I came across the website for NcFTP. It's a pretty good enhanced FTP client for UNIX. Well, it has a Windows port now so I tried that out. The Windows port is a bit of an odd duck though. While it retains its classic command-line flavor, it also has a GUI for managing bookmarks! A proper Windows FTP client like WS_FTP, FTP Explorer or FileZilla is a better choice for normal use but I can see NcFTP being useful for scripting certain uploads that I do regularly. So I'll keep it handy.
