I don't but I suggest modifying rip.r: It should watch a special directory, polling every number of seconds. You can call it "compressed/", for eg. When you upload some files into this directory, they are noticed by rip.r and moved to another directory to be decompressed ("decompressed/"), and the compressed archive deleted. You then change directory to decompressed/ to get the files you are interested in. So the overall process for the user is: 1) upload to one location 2) download from another location You have just one program running on the server, too. Anton.
