1. don't have sendspace any more.
2. don't have it because the upload thing on the site takes 30 years for one file to upload.

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!

Hi Hayden,


No, but they stop working after everybody and their uncle gets a
chance to download before you do. Try downloading something off a
heavily used list when it is a Dropbox link. I can assure you if you
don't start the download as soon as you see it in a few hours the link
will give you the oh so lovely, "download has exceeded maximum
bandwidth limit" message and you have to wait until his/her account
resets before grabbing the file. Dropbox is a serious pain in the butt
when trying to share something with two or three hundred people at a
time, because when talking about hundreds of downloads Dropbox won't
allow you to do it, and it will only allow so many downloads daily. I
forget what it is maybe 25 per day, but the thing is it is
rediculously low for a heavily used mailing list were downloads can
add up to the hundreds quickly. Dropbox was only designed to share
files and things with a few family and friends, and was never intended
for mass redistribution of stuff as all too many try to do.

Cheers!

Hi,
I should  tell you that dropbox, or as you so quaintly call it, flopbox,
links do not expire.

Best Regards,
Hayden
