SDF is alright.  Been there since 2001.  It's definitely old school unix
- something that appeals to me and helps keep the skills fresh.  I run
NetBSD on my home systems so SDF feels very comfortable.

On the file transfer question, an example:

% cd /tmp
% fortune > oh.txt
% tar cf - oh.txt | ssh me@xxxxxxxxxxxxx "tar xf - -C ~/gopher"
% snarf gopher:// -
Do you realize how many holes there could be if people would
just take the time to take the dirt out of them?

* The "~/gopher" is a symbolic link that gets set up automatically
  when you run the 'mkgopher' command on SDF.

You can also use sftp for an interactive ftp-like method.
For windows users the Putty terminal app has pscp and psftp
which perform similar functions.
