File Upload Solutions…

January 3, 2006

Happy New Year to all – just needed to get that out of the way.

A little while back, I was looking for a free file hosting solution. I settled on a choice but was not thrilled – turns out they kill the file after a certain period of time without activity (something I managed to miss in reading the EULA). Since my files are cetainly nothing that’s going to be getting any high traffic, I was a bit irritated that I would have to re-upload my file every 14 days (or write something that automagically downloads it to keep it active). Lo and behold, someone else has done a little research and shared it with the world – here’s the list of free services and their basic terms.

Not only that but it looks like this guy’s blog may be a valuable source of info as I attempt to learn the new Adobe CS2 that I got. </drool>

Icon (Not Jimmy) Buffet…

December 5, 2005

While I’m certainly able to hold my own using Photoshop, I’m no icon guru. I’ve been working to create some new icons for my webchat program but I’ve recently run across a new program from IconBuffet – (free)My Deliveries. Basically, you get a set of icons that you can use as well as the ability to share the set with up to 5 friends. Everyone that signs up gets a set and then you can swap them. Icon trading at it’s best and it’s great PR for the company. Gotta make you smile…
 


File Storage Solution – Part Deux…

December 3, 2005

I’ve decided to try out SaveFile for my personal development projects – currently I’m only going to put up SourceControlSwitcher and iTunesCommander. It has the requisite pop-under and banner ads that come from using a free service and I haven’t found a way to automate the uploading so that my build scripts can handle it for me so I may not stick with them but I want to give it a try before I continue the search.
