Nice, a little time limited though at 24 hours but then that might not be a bad thing for many uses, like when you don't want your work out there for anybody to grab for a longer period.

There are some similar services, all the free ones I've seen do have some sort of time limitation, one I saw would delete the file after a week of nobody accessing it.

With attachment sizes limited through most email servers now these can be very handy services. Even a 10 megapixel raw image exceeds the limits of many email servers since that can run over 15 meg for one picture.

Worth a bookmark.

I've had good results with , which lets you send filesup to 1GB for free, and they stay up for a week, then vanish. Multiple addresses OK, recipient gets a message with a download link. You get the link, too, in case you want to send it to others (during that week). Very handy.
