Uploading files with code in WSS 2.0

This is more for my benefit because I always seem to have to research this over and over and over again, and I always have to dig to find out what I discovered. But if you need to programmatically upload files from a client to a SharePoint Document Library in WSS 2.0 or SharePoint Portal Server 2003, these resources may help you as well.

Best client side sample I’ve seen:

(but I’m very puzzled as he’s using server side classes, which I thought can only be used in a web app…)
