As a rule, we only deploy websites from Subversion and this is something that we made company policy long ago. However, there are times when we are limited to FTP access and for these occasions it's good to have a decent FTP client. Panic's Transmit has, for a long time, set the standard for FTP clients on Mac OS X.
I dropped out of University twice. Computer Science didn't turn out to be as interesting as I had hoped and I was too young to appreciate tertiary education. If I had studied film I probably would have been more interested, but I couldn't see the career relevance. I have since regretted not having any form of qualification.
