comment Should you keep a copy of all the code you write?
The other approach for this is that when I encounter a useful/reusable bit of code that I'd like to "take with me" ... I simply go home, and write a blog post about the particular API or technique that has interested me. This blog post of course does not reference my employer, nor does it use, line by line, the code written on my employer's dime.

comment Buy vs. Build - FTP Service
@Jeremy, yep, not enough. @Jon, yes ... confidential client data. @Frustrated ROI isn't the question. @qes, similar situation with us, FTPing itself is not a core part of our business, but communicating the data itself is.

yeah, the queryable status/callback is a rather important feature. Will take a look at rebex if we decide to build. thanks :-)
