    I just stick on my website and let people download it.

    Of course, my website sits on my local network. So that kinda makes it easy

    Damn! That's a really really good idea! I'll have to remember that link whenever I want to send something.

    If you can't get that to work you could always use WinRar and divide it up into smaller files and then send it using Gmail accounts - but www.yousendit.com looks much easier.

    Look at the footer on their site
    "Transferring over 11,324,734,046,208 bytes per day"
    10.3 TB (10550GB) Per day? Holy shit

    That's pretty sweet, just bookmarked it. Thanks. :)

    It's really rough when you're on dialup and people send you huge files. At least gmail or other web-based ones give you the option to download it when you want. This sounds like a neat service, though. Thanks again!

    jaqiejean.mine.nu (my internet site, hosted on my own box in front of me)

    if its for public use I post a link to the file at http://foxenforums.mine.nu/

    if it isnt I send them a link, encrypt the file, yadda yadda yadda.

    by the way the 3rd of next month my second broadband connect arrives! :cool:

    once I build the load balancing server, I will have aggregate bandwidth of 6.5Mbps down and 2.25Mbps up. I will suggest to people to use GetRight or another download segmenter to get files from me at full speed :cool: :p
