 Internet Rapidshare - free temporary file hosting
Here is another free file hosting service like YouSendit and DropLoad. Basically they all work the same. You go to their website and upload a file there. They will give you back a link to that file so that once your friends get the link from you, they can download your file onto their PC's. The maximum file sizes for these sites are: Dropload=100mb / YouSendit=1000mb / Rapidshare=30mb. The Rapidshare site was the easiest to use so far and it's download speed was up around 18k/sec. Not bad at all.
