In all honesty, you're better off using a generic FTP client (such as WS_FTP) than a web browser. Doing FTP with an HTTP browser introduces additional overhead that can slow the transfer (at least that's been my experience.
ftp.bluefeathertech.com is the address of interest.

Check out their computer salvage prices. Wow! $200 for XT machines... $25 for 3.5" drives. All the salvage shops I've been to charge a few bucks for such items. Do some folks actually pay those kind of prices for common items?
I've been using GTTY a lot recently and discovered a feature that probably
should have been there from day one: A "clear screen" commmand. Expecially
helpful when you're running diagnostics and are getting errors - then swaping
boards and reruning the diags. Hitting the "clear screen" key (F6) is handy
for cleaning up the old diagnostic messages.
To update your copy to this latest version:
Note: For those who haven't been following "GTTY" - Its purpose is to act as
a "Glass TTY" for a PDP-8/x, including paper tape reader and punch. It has
"pacing" implemented, and supports baud rates from 110 to 38,400. The "txt"
file includes documentation on both "GTTY" and the hardware modifications for
implementing "pacing" for your PDP-8/x. Source code is included.
Please also note that GTTY defaults to "pacing" mode - but if invoked as
"gtty -n" will turn off pacing.

Hmm, they sure sound different from what I've got here; are they made
by Digital Products Inc.? Any idea when?
These units all have internal power supplies.
FWIW, access to the configuration menu is ~~M, but you get a full screen
menu, not just a prompt.

Softhut is a good bet. That's who Jens suggests too.
