speaking as someone who's used shifted downloaded stuff over to real c64's
from funet , zipped up archives are better as they can be unzipped on a c64
easily .
for my stuff i've uploaded ( and trying to at moment !! )  i first used
lynx17 to create LNX archive  on 1541 then got that onto 3.5"  thanks to my
amiga then used pkzip in my mac to compress them before ftp'ing them .
d64 files are usually fine but there are times when a byte gets taken away
or added in which garbles them when they're used in a real c64 - i think
this is the problem when people complain that some prg like dfiler 'isn't
working right' ............
