Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

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.
