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:
wyvern: surfduke: You should be able to post links to any files or images already on a website somewhere by just adding the URL when you set-up a post using the full "Create Post" Forum post editor (i.e. NOT the "Quick Reply" version).

wyvern: I've found Photos loading the first image slowly every time I've switched on the computer in recent times. It's been OK after that, but seems like it can't quite remember how to do it just after it's been woken up...

surfduke: Do you want a preview pdf of the Jupiter 2 here? If so how do I post it.

Vermin King: That would explain why 'Photos' loaded slower this weekend. It was 'improved'

wyvern: It wasn't some fresh Windows "improvement" then... I noticed the icon for the MS image viewer, "Photos", changed a few days back as well. Doesn't seem to have changed the app, as far as I can tell. Yet.

lightning: Glad that only a restart was involved. I wouldn't have the energy to much more today :-)

Vermin King: I had a scare and a half. Went to open a pdf for the first time today and nothing happened. Checked All Programs and saw that Reader updated on 05/23. Restarting fixed it. Whew

cowboyleland: I always thought Tirick was a little mad.

Vermin King: Really worn out tonight, so when I'm like that I just look for things I used to have, but don't any more. I got the Zippy models and am rebuilding my Tirick/TCF Gaming folder. How the heck would anyone build his 1/1000 Battletech mechs without enlarging

Toman: yea I have been. pretty cool project. I've done a few scratch builds like that but not as large. cutting individual stones or carving stones in foam sucks.
May 19, 2020 16:50:41 GMT -9
Vermin King: Anybody else following Mauther's home-made Playmobile castle build? Looks really good so far

cowboyleland: Good point. Maybe make the wing feathers seperately so that the wind could get through them?

squirmydad: We had two operators for the hawk though, one to carry the weight and the other to flap the wings.
May 13, 2020 11:02:25 GMT -9
squirmydad: Probably silk and dowels. I assisted in the construction of a giant hawk puppet for an indoor show, probably about the same size as that pegasus.

Vermin King: It's got to be really light. The article dealt with parade puppets. I don't think I'd want to be trying to control that in a stiff wind

lightning: that's a nice pegasus!
May 13, 2020 4:10:32 GMT -9
shep: Will it fly, if you move the wings fast enough?
