Anyone on this list is welcome use the upload section of my web site. It 
is intended for manuals, until I check them and move them to the 
"formal" Manual section, but since you can upload anything that will fit 
(<25 GB please), you are welcome to use that for temporary storage as 
long as it is loosely related to the interests of this list, or the 
TekScope or hp_agilent_equipment mailing lists, which I participate in. 
If I need the room, I will simply delete the old stuff, but there is 
lots of space there, so you should be assured that whatever you upload 
will probably be there for at least a few weeks or months.

Please do not upload sensitive information, or documents that could 
possibly irritate a big corporation with lots of copyright lawyers...

If it is of more than passing interest and should be kept more 
permanently, send me an email and I will move the material in the Manual 
folder http://www.ko4bb.com/ham_radio/Manuals

ftp.ko4bb.com
login: manuals
password: manuals

To send a link in an email, you can either use "ftp://ftp.ko4bb.com", 
which requires the same login/password as above and provides you with an 
ftp interface, or simply "http://www.ko4bb.com/~manuals/" which does not 
require login and presents an http interface, whichever you prefer.

You are welcome to experiment. If you upload something and change your 
mind, the ftp interface will allow you to delete stuff in the upload 
folder. Be considerate of others please :-)
