Better Temporary File Sharing

I heard about this on the cool Hey Jude blog and it’s amazing.
FileURLS is a nifty online tool that quickly lets you share a file. I experimented with a fairly large PPT and a DOC file. There is currently no need to set up an account. It lets you set an expiry date up to 7 days in the future. After it uploads your file – and it is very very fast (I was amazed) – it gives you a simple URL. You can then e-mail the URL created, or place it in your blog or wiki.
Anyway, it will handle any file up to 250MB. I can think of many timies when this would have helped me out a lot – especially when I need to get around e-mail filters that limit attachments to 4MB.
This is too simple to be true and beats FTP hands down!

  1. I’ve used this free service three times today. It is the sort of seemless tool that makes life so much better. Now all we have to do is educate people to stop emailing huge files and use things like this instead.
