Every TCP/IP data packet is check-summed. Every Ethernet packet has
a CRC. If you have data corruption it is caused either by a memory
error or, most likely, you did not set the ftp data-transfer mode
to binary `set bin` when you have the 'ftp>' prompt.
Also, text-files (Java Script) on DOS-based stuff (like windows) use
both a '\r' and a '\n' at the end of each line. Unix/Linux uses '\n'
only. I am pretty sure this is not a kernel issue.

I was going to compile a list of innovations that could be
attributed to Microsoft. Once I realized that Ctrl-Alt-Del
was handled in the BIOS, I found that there aren't any.
