Two days ago, the File Transfer Protocol turned 50 years! Today, it's mostly used to download Firefox without opening Internet Explorer and as an asynchronous RPC protocol for credit card processing jobs.

@aza_leah it's also used by me when I'm on a system without a web browser and need to download something but can't remember the exact path to use in the URL

ftp is still useful <3

@aza_leah hey! Credit card processors and banks use SFTP these days.

@aza_leah hah, haven’t seen that before - mostly still sftp, thanks to the e2e principle (:
