The instructions below should work.  If not, please get in touch.

The Marxism discussion list and its ftp site--information

Our FTP directory at World now contains the following items:
Steve Keen's thesis (in both uncompressed and compressed form) on the
Labour Theory of Value, and James Lawler's paper on "Lenin and the
Socialist Transition in Russia."  To access either of them, please follow
these instructions:

To connect to World, say

    ftp  ftp.std.com

You will get some reply, and then be asked for your login ID.


You will be asked for a password, to which you should reply with
your complete e-mail address (I think they just want that for
bookkeeping purposes, and my guess is that it's optional).

You will get a lengthy "welcome" message followed by the ftp prompt,
which is "ftp>".  Say

    cd /ftp/pub/spoon/marxism

and then when it prompts you again, say

    ls -l

This will give you a list of all the files and their sizes.  Say


to change to binary transfer mode (which is faster for all files
and necessary for compressed files).  Then for each file you
want to transfer, say

    get file-name

which will transfer the file to your machine.  This operation
may take a while, so be patient.

After each transfer is completed, you will get prompted again.
When you've gotten all the file you want, say


and you'll be out of ftp.

Sometimes connection is refused because the remote machine is too
busy.  If this happens, try again at some other time.
