A guy at work just put me onto this service...

YouSendIt

It is free and allows you to transfer files of up to 1GB

Which might come in handy occasionally

And they get to hold onto your files...
(I believe they're probably ad-based, but I'm still skeptical of that - so says a Gmail users. [Wink] )

I'll stick to running my own servers. [Smile]

But not everyone has that luxury oh mighty Dragon...

And there don't appear to be any ads on their site... unless of course they are using the service to harvest known good e-mail addresses...

But it is free and it might have occasional use... like if I want to send Infinitesimal a 500MB disk image for example

I like that service. I've used it for transferring large video files, and it works well.

It also seems to be the current vessel of choice for software piracy, not that I'd know anything about that.

Well, I actually have this "service" mentioned on my home-site for a long time now, particularly on the page: various.html ...

It's cool to be able to send files up to 1 GB but will the recipient be able to get it? What if their inbox can't hold that much-it could mean a lot of bounce backs.

That's not how it works. Instead, you get sent a link, and download it from their server. They keep it for a few days, I think, so you can download more than once.
