I've been using Google docs to share files (it comes with a free gmail account) which I've found to be reliable (and free).

Google docs is becoming "Google Drive" with 5Gb free storage.

[ Don't expect privacy with Gmail: google reads your gmails ]

You can of course encrypt the files you store on Google docs/drive (with say PeaZip) if you don't want Google to read the contents.

Personally one could potentially split files into parts, and then upload them if they can't find an appropriate site for their file and size.

For ISOs, just link to all parts, or a site with links to all parts. For packages, I'd say perhaps build a dotpet that would only serve to execute some commands to download packages linked to by a file on a web server.

But I digress. I do agree with above about Google Docs, but perhaps Wuala might do (From what I remember at least)

I guess you wouldn't be allowed to host other people's files, but if anyone would want unlimited storage for $125/year for life, check out Spideroak's offer for the next couple of days.

Have just learnt this about the Box service:

The reason why you can no longer download the shared files is because you have fully used up the assigned bandwidth on your account which is 10GB. Free accounts are given 10GB of bandwidth they can use per month. Once the limit has been reached download will not longer be available. Wait for your bandwidth assignment to get reset next month and you can go back to downloading the files.

Have replied it would be a good system enhancement if this explanation was given at the point of a failed download.....rather than leaving the user in confusion as to why a download has not occurred

Looks like its a while since anyone posted here .
Found the New Zealand guy Kim Dotcom is it ? used to have MegaUploadnow has just Mega .
50 Gb limit free ,links and all .



Anyone using the site ?
Any problems ?
Only uploaded one file so far

https://mega.nz/


Quote:
Mega: Internet outlaw Kim Dotcom released this service one year after the U.S. government shut down its predecessor, MegaUpload, for facilitating copyright infringement. The new tool promises “state of the art, browser-based encryption technology” and a whopping 50 GB of free cloud storage.


MEGA was architected around the simple fact that cryptography, for it to be accepted and used, must not interfere with usability. MEGA is fully accessible without prior software installs and remains the only cloud storage provider with browser-based high-performance end-to-end encryption. The only visible signs of the crypto layer operating under MEGA's hood are the entropy collection during signup, the lack of a password reset feature and the novel (and browser-specific) ways file transfers are conducted. Today, millions of business and personal users rely on MEGA to securely and reliably store and serve petabytes of data and we believe that this success is the result of MEGA's low barrier to entry to a more secure cloud.[/quote]

I'm not a MEGA user and I would honestly avoid it. The NZ government is a shareholder can could easily sneak bad code into the extensions.

Err not that I am aware of . Bit like "Farlap" bit jealous are we?.
The code is all made public - have a look on the site.

We do things differently out here and New Zealand does not colaborate with Yanks or Frenchies after their well known attacks on New Zealand soil. Hell they won't even let the Yanky Navy bring their nuclear ships into NZ waters.!

But then with a by-line like that what else could I expect.

I would stay on April's good side.

She has an attitude, and she's armed.

If you don't believe me, look here.
