"Reminds me of our Solaris Sysadmin - doesn't have a fscking clue! "

Ouch :)

"Surely he realises that a link like: [link] OS.com/acornftp.htm will not work."

Indeed I do. It wasn't like that in the article I submitted, and was changed by a search and replace at OSNews. They've now fixed the links.

"And it's not RISC OS either, and I don't think Acorn ever made a "PC".

The search and replace seems to have messed up the capitilisation a bit.

I meant PC, as in it's original meaning of "Personal Computer". I've always used that to refer to a computer system of any kind - although I acknowledge it is now used almost exclusively to mean a Windows-based Intel system. Probably beacuse I've been through different platforms in my time I got tired referring to "my XYZ system", and just started calling it my "computer" instead. Hey Ho.
