    Default FTP Status as of August 2018

    Update and Access: https://photonlexicon.com/forums/sho...839#post345839

    There was a longstanding issue with credentials and someone wrecking the FTP to get their rocks off. A number of "well established/trusted" members here who have asked for the "real" FTP login credentials have received them but as an interim solution for those of you wanting to grab content while I figure this crap out, point your browser to http://www.photonlexicon.com/symlinkftp/ and feed it the credentials of plftp : readonly

    That will take you to a live directory listing of the ftp. Please do not hammer that site and don't use a "site downloader" or any software like that either. If the apache service here starts getting hammered it will start to actively refuse connections which can render this board inaccessible. Under normal use this isn't a problem but if some "big thinker" decides that he wants to set 8 concurrent connections with 8 threads a pop to clone the contents that *will* be a problem.

    Consider this a beta hack to restore read credentials - if you need actual ftp read/write access - shoot me a message.

    If anyone would like to act as "keeper of the login info" please reply to this thread and I will update this post to reflect you as another person people can contact to get full access.

    Note to those who have the ftp login info: The directory structure on the ftp has been changed to accommodate this hack - Please use the new schema.

    About bloomin' well time.
    With all the miscreants and ne'er do wells that inhabit T'internet these days it's only natural to protect a precious resource such as the PL FTP site.

    It's also amazing how many peepe are coming out of the woodwork (supposedly long standing members) to request access......
