Understandably. A poor option, but I default to avoiding modern and
"convenient" web-app type things, 'cause of the inconvenience of them
being proprietary and all corporate-malwared-up. I was going to ask
about FTP, but this'll work:

Now that is how web applications should be. With JS off I get a nice
plain HTML form. The first file looks like it is working, the form
submitting right now.


And now it looks to be done. Cookies were off in the browser and so the
form didn't go to a success/fail page, but that is an expected outcome.
If you don't get three files, let me know.

You're welcome, it's been no fuss.

Trains have a bad rep, but they are big machines that are all around
us, there's lots of engineering and otherwise technical stuff that is
interesting. So thank you for highlighting some relatively obscure
stuff, I'm sure there'll be something in there that's properly nerdy.
