FTP is 40 years old

An anonymous reader writes "FTP celebrates its 40th birthday tomorrow. Originally launched as the RFC 114 specification, which was published on 16 April 1971, FTP is arguably even more important today than when it was born. Frank Kenney, vice president of global strategy for US managed file transfer company Ipswitch, said that the protocol we know as FTP today is 'a far cry from when Abhay Bushan, a student at MIT, wrote the original specifications for FTP.' According to Kenney, the standard has grown from 'a simple protocol to copy files over a TCP-based network [to] a sophisticated, integrated model that provides control, visibility, compliance and security in a variety of environments, including the cloud.'"

The rescue happened shortly before 2 a.m. in the 6000 block of Roberts Road, 10TV's Shayla Reaves reported.

Yuri Daikizono apparently fell asleep while driving and crashed into a guardrail. The impact caused the car to land on its side near a small creek. According to police, officers inside a Columbus police helicopter noticed the flames from the air and directed authorities on the ground to the crash.

A group of Columbus officers were the first to arrive, Reaves reported.
