Default 7 Serious Ideas For Future Build...

I think everyone would agree with all of these.
First courtesy of a friend the rest are mine.

1) Add support for multiple server sites. Some ftp sites have more than one server, if one is down it can cycle to the next one until it finds one that works. Such as mIRC can cycle servers of a network until it connects.

2) Add mouse-over status bar captions. The NOTES for an ftp site added in site manager would show in the status bar at the bottom of the program when the user moves the mouse over the site in the quick connect/flashfxp sites list.

3) Expand the capabilities of "Compare Folders". Compare the files by size and existance, not only by existance. So it can be a true comparision of the files. Could show you easliy which file is incomplete.

4) Add support setting for PORT/PASSIVE and CONNECT RETRY DELAY in the "ftp:// fxp://" filed. So if a user pastes:
flashfxp will set the settings for the site to use passive to connect and set retry delay time to 120 seconds.

5) Add an 'overall stats' field. Like the site manager shows the stats for each site you add, add a total stats field.

6) Redo the snake game in the help/about easter egg of doubleclicking the flashfxp icon. Make it so whatever level you start at if you get so many points it starts going faster, like up a level so you don't sit there playing the same **** all day... That would rock :D

7) Make plans for a FlashFXP Server application. I'd love to see that too :D

I think that's enough for now..
