Sandpaper v1.0 and CMDv2

Well folks, this is it. We're in the final stretch of Nomination November, and we are going to do our best to tidy up some last-minute additions for 2013 POTY eligibility. Let's jump right in, shall we?
Months ago, Christopher "Kerm Martian" Mitchell released an FTP Client/Server combo for the TI-83/84+ named Sandpaper v1.0. Sandpaper works with CALCnet and Doors CS and allows users to transfer data to multiple calcs, and even allows for nabbing files from online archives (for example, ours!). It's really quite a robust little setup, and I encourage you to check out the readme for a more full appreciation of its potential. I take responsibility for the delay on this one: I could have sworn that it had already been featured.
Keeping in line with the gratification of FTP transfers, there are those of us who feel most at home when we're navigating our systems via the rustic wholesomeness that is the command line. Scott Mangiapane has just released CMDv2, a simple command line interface for your calc. It does of the things that one would expect from this type of program, such as allowing the user to query for basic status reports, navigate the file system, and so forth. Practical? Not always. Satisfying? Oh yeah.
