how interesting!  i've been working on that very same thing this weekend!
sending some files over the internet, and the best way to do it.

i tried creating a save file, then ftping it to the p/c, zipping it, and
unzipping it.  the unzipping locks up the p/c, so i guess that's not an option!

compressing the save file helps some, but not as much as pkzip.  but i guess 
that
will have to do....
