The directory is <ftp://members.aol.com/dgriggs> and the file is 
"Vector"; however, it has no suffix on it, so FTP doesn't know what type 
it is, so it downloads as text; Stuffit says it's a "corrupted archive". 
Changing the file type to APPL doesn't work as there's no resource fork.

However, overriding FETCH's defaults and "forcing" a binary download 
_did_ work, and indeed created a "Vector.sea" and a folder, "Vector Test" 
on my hard drive. So the data's there, you've just gotta be tricky to get 

It'll have to be reuploaded as a MacBinary file; Vector.sea.bin; in order 
to work automatically...
