Hi Joel,

Thanks for your description of how to upload files to SendSpace.  It was
quite helpful.  I successfully uploaded my file and got a confirmation
email.

I didn't bother to do the free registration and heard a little reminder
about that fact after the upload was complete.  If I were going to do a lot
of uploading and downloading, I would probably want to establish an account
with them.  I was glad to see how easy it was to use the service.  Thanks
also to James and Chris for your comments.
