Internet Drop Box

How many times have you wanted to send a file to 1 or 2 friends or associates but don’t want to deal with the hassle of setting up an ftp server? I don’t know about all of you but this happens to me all the time. Well enter it’s a site that allows you to upload files of up to 100MB each.

What happens is you get a form with 2 fields “To:” which is the e-mail of the person you want to have access to the file and “File:” which allows you to browse to the file you want to upload. After filling out these forms. Badda bing bada boom the recipients get an email with a link to the file you uploaded.

Nice, Clean, Easy (semi anonymous) and it sure as hell beats uploading a file individually to several people.

BIG UPDATE!!! I’ve found an even better alternative to the service discussed above. It allows files up to 1GB in size and requires no soul sucking signup! it’s called “YouSendIt” It even provides secure transfers!
