I’ve used that one before, well about 5 years ago when sendspace was perfectly 
useless for a mac and it worked fine actually.  Change that 6 years ago, also 
have used digshare, but they did start getting goofy uploads and downloads were 
both getting really slow, think they got to big to fast and their system bogged 

Check the terms and conditions etc and see if there is a limit to how many 
people can download.  Most times people will grab a letter the day it is posted 
or in a couple of days, so if it’s a 30 day deal you have it made in the shade. 
 We as a list don’t specifically endorce any specific file type or storage 
site, my only mention concerning media fire is that we’ve experienced people 
being left out in the cold because of their limits of how many people can 
download, other than that it was okay.  On Apr 23, 2014, at 10:02 PM, Anita
