Dark,
Dropbox links do *not* expire. So long as the file stays up there the link
is good. On the other hand, I have a problem where Sendspace deletes your
fiels after so much time.

Best Regards,
Hayden

This is again why I personally prefer sendspace for file sharing, as many 
people can download as much as they want and the link stays.

Beware the grue!
