    Is there such a thing anymore? I just need to upload a 68 MB file so my relatives could download it and watch it or something.

    Not free but $36 US at sdf public access unix system will give you full lifetime "ARPA" membership. You will get 100MB email account, 100MB webspace, and 100mb of personal storage for a UNIX account. A annual donation will give you more access rights and I believe the ability to tweak your storage settings, say you wanted only a 20mb email and a 50mb personal storage and 230MB webspace. Here is a description of the organization from there site:



    However this site is not designed to cater to the lowest common denominator of computer users at least a basic knowledge of telnet (or SSH), FTP, and some unix commands (cd, ls, chmod) are required. Help is available within the site and if you have any questions feel free to post them here.

    Check with your ISP. You might already be eligible for some free Web space on their servers. Just don't expect a whole lot of it.

    If you have a high speed connection and your ISP doesn't forbid occassional use of a server application, you could also try out AnalogX's free Web server. Just turn it on when you need to, and pass on your current TCP/IP address to your family and friends.

    Burn it to a CD and mail it to them. It might be faster and easier, particularly if this is a one-time thing. Also, if they are on dial-up, a 68MB file is pretty large to download.

    Thanks for the replies guys. I just went ahead with Yahoo briefcase, had to breakdown the files though.
    Dave...they r in the Philippines. Mailing it to them would take a good 3 weeks and the files r kind of urgent.
