There were many. I know of only one left form the old GD/Garcia days. Other than that site, I only use ftp as a way to upload to servers.

I think WeenFTP is still active, but I haven't used it in years.

Re: Does anyone use FTP's anymore?

everybody is using the 'ftp replacements' like megaupload, rapidshare, zshare, sendspace, etc etc etc in the lossless blogs. that way downloaders can get great speeds and the 'seeder' doesn't have to provide the bandwidth. the last ftp I used was the leonard cohen one a couple years back and it was very very slow!

Ha! true! I grabbed everything from bluegrassbox. Mighty fine!
That whole scene is still alive to say the least.
I forgot because bluegrassbox was more an institution than an ftp site.

Re: Does anyone use FTP's anymore?

I still use FTP for some of my trades. Its a great way to save on the high cost of international postage.
