I've got a few files I'll be wanting to share with any interested gaming/cardstock modelers/hobbyists soon. And I'd like any suggestions on good, free file hosting services anyone is using successfully.
I'm currently using www.4shared.com to create temporary backups of some of my files, as well as occasionally sharing stuff with friends. Standard accounts are free, and you can have as many as you have e-mail addresses (much like Photobucket). Registering gets you 5Gb of storage space, which you can divide up into folders if you need to, and you can upload individual files of up to 100Mb.

I do have a few blogspots reserved. I just didn't look into what kind of policy on download limits, etc.
I was speaking mainly about PDf documents. The tile set I have made for dungeon crawling. And other items currently in the works. For images I'll continue using Photobucket, Picasso & eventually FlikR.
I am not ready to purchase my own domain (but when I do it'll probably be at SquareSpace) so I wondered what was free and the easiest method of getting some files distributed for people whom want them...without having to e-mail them all individually.
I'm still using it and I don't think the admins would mind but I post all my finished stuff over at www.papermakeit.com/. I use photobucket for my images as well. The main reason why I use paper make it is because other gamers (not just the ones that visit onemonks) get a chance to see and use it.

Might I suggest Dropbox. It has been suggested before but I thought I'd put it here as well to be complete. It's really quite easy. Download the client, put the file you want to share in the public folder, right click and 'Copy Public Link', then paste it where ever you want to share it. Like so:
lightning: That is good advice but I still wish I could create faster to get all ideas out of my head in time :-)

Papercraft Warrior: The trick is, only projects you should start, are those that you can finish in reasonable time... all others get stuck in their own personal hell.

Coyotepunc: Hopefully tonight I will get some pictures up of Striders with tentacles and my kitbashed 1940s Manchurian building. Hopefully. I might just go to bed.

Vermin King: I think that's why I'm doing so many 'stupid' little projects these days. The projects I want to finish seem to be stuck in their own pocket universe

mproteau: I'm tempted to rename "Paper Realms" to "Glacial Studios" to reflect my pace.

okumarts: Really overwhelmed at work. Marking essays and projects at the end of a semester. I wish I could create stuff faster.

mproteau: 2 of 3 pages of the Local Heroes minis are done! I'm working on some 6" cave walls right now, kinda flip-flopping between the two tasks. Should have the set's cutfiles done tonight, though.

mproteau: Finally! A little success on my cave walls. I like what happened on my desk this morning, and it led me to a few more ideas. Time to work on the grids for the tiles..

mproteau: Good lord I hope I get better at what I'm doing, 'cause it isn't all that good right now! Time to pick up another pack of cardstock to feed to the cutter... lots of failed test builds...
