Don’t know anything about the life time storage accounts.  But yes once you 
have a file up there you can delete it at a later point, or move it around to 
another folder.  The only computers used by blind people where sendspace isn’t 
very workable is with linux boxes because Sendspace seems to not update their 
wizard for linux.  At least with any ubuntu based linux it is out of date and 
is a pain to even get and install let alone if it’s actually accessible or not. 
 Doesn’t work the greatest using firefox on the web page either, but since you 
aren’t messing with a linux machine it isn’t a problem.  

Yes if you put a file up with your mac your pc can see it and retrieve it or 
move it or whatever you need to do.  I’ve never tried to upload files at the 
same time using a pc and a mac though, that may not work.  I primarily use the 
wizard tool rarely use sendspace as a web interface, but occasionally I have 
had to do it to download files from other people.  

Also another thing with sendspace,  if it is a file that is going to have a lot 
of downloads, say a hundred for example, copy the link and edit the word pro 
out of it and put the word file in it instead.  If you have your wizard set to 
send you an e-mail confirming a file upload though, they will have that link 
included in your receipt e-mail.  I tend to prefer them just send me the e-mail 
then I will send the link instead of telling sendspace to send the link to 
someone else most of the time.  The reason I mention this is that if there are 
lots of downloads it starts effecting your bandwidth limits in sendspace in pro 
accounts.  But edit the link and it sees it as the account category that used 
be in between the pro accounts and the free ones.  So they eliminated that type 
off account, but not within their server system.  Only on the financial end of
