[TIPS] - Send large files quickly and easily without clogging up your email.

You're in a hurry and you decide to check your email (often a mistake) and suddenly you're stuck waiting for an email with a large attachment to download. Or, you need to send a file that's 50 megs to someone and you KNOW that person has a dialup connection and it'll take forever to download. How can you send those large files to that person so that he/she can download them when they're ready? Enter: mailbigfile.com
 
 
This free service lets you upload a file and supply an email address of your friend. Your friend will get an email from the site with a link to the file which they can click on anytime within the 7 day period that they keep your file on hand. And - it can be up to 1 GIG!! (But shame on you for sending a 1 gig file!)
 
Other services that do the same thing include: http://www.yousendit.com/, http://www.whalemail.com/, http://www.fatfile.com/
 
Of course, if YOU are on a dialup, too,  it just may be faster to put that 50 meg file on a jump drive and MAIL it to your friend. :-)

Your blog page is really impressive! Can you launch the space shuttle from this thing? I'm convinced you can. You've put my knowledge of all things "tech" to shame! Marie :)
