Coupla Howtos: SQLite & NcFTP

Filed under
HowTos

Everyone knows about open source database giants such as MySQL and PostgreSQL; these free SQL database servers are commonly used by Web applications and other programs.

There's nothing quite as painful as watching large files download over slow connections. And it's even worse when it's 9 PM, you're the only one left in the office, and you can't leave until your entire file upload or download is complete.

Fortunately, there is a solution to this unhappy state of affairs. You can use the NcFTP suite of file transfer tools to automate your file transfer, allowing you to go home, catch a movie, have a good night's sleep, and come back in the morning to find your work complete.

Automate your FTP Transfers with NcFTP and improve your efficiency.
