Except that some of us use windows based FTP systems as they are much
easier to uese - in this case they will see nothing and won't be able to
access your sj file.

The other problem is that I'm sure T$R read this list, and so could now
know about your *secret* directory.  On the other hand, since they
aren't bothering about Spelljammer any more, they may not care so much,
until *Wildspace* comes out.
