Trying the Privacy Thang!
I've been fishing around for a reliable file server in the clouds these days, ever since the untimely Big Brother attack on Kim Dotcom's haven in New Zealand & the wanton destruction of millions of legal (& illegal, to be sure) files. MegaUpload had been easy & reliable.
Then the fear spread like wildfire. Mediafire suspended my account for no good reason. I had no DMCA incidents. In fact, only twice in this blogs history had artists even requested that I delete files (Van Morrison & Rodney Bingenheimer), which I did immediately. Mediafire's reason was simple fear. Since then I have tried more than a dozen other options (Depositfiles & ZippyShare being the best so far).
Then on the one year anniversary of the attack on MegaUpload, Kim Dotcom & company launched a Privacy Project...MEGA. I have high hopes for its success. We all shall see.
I have re-upload levelofdetail's request to MEGA. Try it out if you choose. You'll have to check the comments on the original post to get the decryption key. The only seeming problem so far has been that MEGA uses HTML5. Now all current browsers say they are, well...current, but MEGA recommends Google Chrome. With it, everything seems quite good. They even provide a download of Chrome from their site, or you can get it from Google or many other sources.
Give it a try. Let me know. Keep your fingers crossed. There may be hope for LEGAL file sharing yet.
Enjoy the NEW privacy!
