Don't shoot me if this has been said before somewhere btut www.megaupload.com looks better than rapidshare. You don't have to split archives etc. The only problem is that I don't know if there is a maximum number of downloads, but after looking, I don't think there is. I may be wrong.

I noticed it after djaef used it.
Surely, it should be given a try?

Sorry to be a party pooper, but, if someone offers something for free, it is a gift, and the best thing to do with a gift is to gratefully accept.

If someone decides to upload using Rapidshare, or Flac, or Bit-torrent or whatever, surely that is their perogative?

Therefore the solution is for the downloader to find, and not the uploader to provide.

Even the cheapest Rapidshare package would suffice, and at around £5.00, it is not that expensive - considering the amount of downloads that can be received.

It's just a pet hate of mine - that the kindness and generosity of this zone knows know bounds - and yet we still read mails from bleating hearts: too big, too small, MP3, can't download torrents, don't like Rapidshare or whatever.

Remember beggars can't be choosers, and a few "thank-you's" would not be out of place either.

Nobody said they were being ungrateful. I was making an alternative suggestion to rapidshare. That was it.

Personally I'd like to see an alternative to Rapid share as my shared IP address prevents me using it at all.

I never hold it against anyone, but if I do find myself needing to upload a file, and don't choose torrent as my method, I will probably use this.

Other forums already use mega upload. Is's very fast and if you search their forum there are lots of great movies to download (http://forums.shooshtime.com/index.php?)

MegaUpload does not restrict by IP, gives an upload progress bar which is useful, gives unlimited downloads and even allows upto 500MB!

This is the regular mesage one gets when trying to download during the so-called *Happy hours&amp;amp;amp* on Rapidshare:`Too many users downloading right now. Please try again later or get a PREMIUM-Account`. Seems fair enough, all the free (ab)users are trying to get their cut.
I stayed up until 3AM CET (4 AM according to my time) because of some silly project I have to finnish soon, not that I intended to catch the famous season ;)
I did eventually get a chance to download Live at Bristol 1973 or something like that.
