Re: saft port


SAFT is a nifty little protocol that lets you send a file to some other
user on the internet without them having to explicitly accept it. Instead,
the SAFT server will receive the file and place it in a queue for access
later on. The protocol itself is quite new; an implementation is in the
`sendfile' package. I strongly suggest checking it out.

This same thing, by the way, can also be done with email, with only one
small problem: most email servers will refuse emails exceeding a certain
(extremely conservative) size, making this protocol impractical for
transferring large files.
