Transfer big files with TransferBIGFiles

screenshot of TransferBIGFiles

You've got files, and you need to get them from here to there. Maybe you need to work on the Big Project at home, but you didn't bring you laptop in today to carry it home on. Or maybe you need to share your work with a colleague in the next office—or on the other side of the world. You could attach it to an email, but big files in an email can be a no-no. You could set up an FTP server, but there's all the administrative overhead in the care and feeding of such a beast. Maybe you ought to check out TransferBIGFiles.

With no registration required, it's easy to send your files where they need to go. From their website, you just upload the file (or files) you're interested in, and enter an email address for your recipient. They'll get an email with a download link and before you know it, they've grabbed the file and you can all get on with life. There's no limit to the number of files you can transfer here, although they can't be larger that 1GB in size each. That's a pretty big file—all the data you can pack onto a CD-ROM and then some. Your file is available for at least five days after you upload it, so there's no reason why your recipient can't find a minute to grab it.

TransferBIGFiles is a free online service. It should be compatible with any computer running a modern web browser.

Files Over Miles does simple, direct transfers in your browser


Looking for a good, simple way to send files using only your web browser? As long as you and your recipient have the Flash plugin installed, it doesn't get much easier than Files Over Miles.

Choose a file to share, and FOM creates a hash-like URL for the transfer. Nothing starts moving until the receiver visits the URL and the client kicks in. Once that happens, your data is sent directly to the person at the other end. Nothing is stored on a server and transfers are fully encrypted.

FOM is free to use and will likely stay that way. Since you use your own bandwidth, their expenses should be fairly minimal.

The service works well, though I'd like to see integrated support for short URLs. For now, you can always use one of the options on Jay's big list to trim your link manually.

    A big list of ways to make Tiny URLs


    With all the URL shortening sites that have been popping up lately -- and even services that let you make your own -- I thought it would be a good idea to take a look back at the link-shrinkers we've covered in the past here at Download Squad. Some of them are legitimately useful, while some of them are complete novelties that you'd only break out as a joke. You'll also have to forgive some of our references to getting Rickrolled -- it was a legitimate concern back then! So, without further ado, here's a big list of ways to create very small URLs:

    NSFW.in is designed for sharing links that are Not Safe For Work. Its unique feature is a warning page, in case the person you're sharing your link with doesn't want to see it after all.

    Bit.ly is still one of the best link shorteners around. It scores points for tracking the traffic to your shortened link, and letting you see if anyone else has made a bit.ly link to the same URL.

    U.nu is a fairly recent entry with a super-short base URL, and the added bonus of generating links that are easy to read out loud to someone or type out from scratch.

    Awe.sm is now offering to create a custom URL shortener for its clients, based on its own service that's not too shabby either.

    Tinyarro.ws uses unicode symbols to make its short URLs even shorter (and kind of cool-looking).

    SHUURL secures your shortened links by showing users a thumbnail of the site you linked to before they click through.

    1link.in opens multiple sites with one shortened link. Users see a list of the links that are included, with the option to open one at a time or open all of them in tabs.

    Tr.im is my personal favorite of the bunch. It's on the shorter side of short URLs, it tracks stats, and it lets you post your links to Twitter with one click.

    BurnURL offers social sharing options for your short links, so you can easily Twitter, Facebook, Digg or Reddit them.

    The DiggBar was the source of much controversy when it first launched, but it continues to be one of the best ways to share your Digg links.

    TinyURL is considered the original link shortener, and still one of the best. Aside from being the default for Twitter, it's also kept up with the new kids by adding the ability to customize your links.

    ceSnipURL is a shortener for Windows Mobile.

    Su.pr is StumbleUpon's link shortener.


    And, for a counterpoint to all of this shortURL madness, take a look at why Download Squad's Lee Mathews is sick of URL shorteners.

    Flip your screen and touchpad from landscape to protrait with EeeRotate

    Sometimes when I'm reading an article or ebook I'd prefer to have my notebook's 1280 pixels in height rather than width. While most display drivers are capable of handling that task, they don't do anything about the orientation of the touchpad. My brain's on-the-fly directional translation gizmo isn't always reliable, so a single application is a better solution for me.

    EeeRotate (link via Google Translate) is a handy little freeware app that combines two previous free efforts - iRotate, which handles the screen and SakasaMouse, which takes care of the touchpad. Launch Eeerotate, and you can quickly flip your screen clockwise or counter-clockwise by pressing ctrl + alt + right (or left, respectively).

    There's not much to see, as you can tell from the screenshot - the app just gets out of your way and does what it needs to do.

    Eeerotate runs on just about any version of Windows, XP or newer, including 64-bit builds.

    Guide to buying a used guitar : Learn where to look and what to look for when purchasing a used electric or acoustic guitar



    Where to look:

    • craigslist > musical instruments
    • Kijiji > buy and sell > musical instruments
    • Other online classifieds

    What to look (out) for:

    Take a look at the sample ad below. On the first look it looks like a really good deal. It comes with a cool box. Only few scratches and chips? No biggy. And all those cool sounding specs. This is the best deal in the world!

    Lets take a dive into reality now. The cool box, which is obviously not very portable because of its weight, is a bait for potential customers.
    The ad fails to mention that each scratch and chip can cost the potential customer $50-$100 to repair. Yes, even the small one may cost that much to repair. Also don't take the advice to cover up those cracks and chips by yourself. That will cost you more when repairing the finish, since the repair guys are paid by the hour on top of labor. It takes hours to repair a small chip, and when you cover it up it makes the job harder and more time consuming for the repair guy.
    And those cool specs are standard on most guitars.



    Here are some really good and elaborate guides on buying a new or used guitar:
