transferring files

Have you ever wanted to transfer an exceptionally large file to someone? Those that have used e-mail to do it usually find that when their friend dialed up to check their e-mail it took 67 hours to download the dang thing across their 56KB connection.

Send huge files by e-mail no more – now there’s a better way:

It’s a free service where you can upload a file for someone else to download a short while later. I’ve had that idea for a while, I just didn’t want to have to pay for the resulting bandwidth bill. To whoever runs the site, thank you.

  1. Hey, cool! I notice that their file size limit is 50 megs, which is a lot more than most e-mail services will allow. I wonder if their servers support resuming.

  2. Meredith (or Dan, or anyone) — for those of us less technically savvy, what’s resuming in the sense used here? Just curious.

  3. I believe Meredith is talking about a download that stops halfway through, and resuming allows you to begin where it stopped instead of having to start over.
