[OT] sharing large files

hi all,

I just came across this, which may be useful to some people here.
It’s basically a way of allowing specific people (eg people you’re
working on a project with) to download a file directly from your
computer, instead of having to upload your files to a service
like .mac . There’s probably more to it than that, but it looks useful.
Here are links to the MacWorld article, and the main site …

Mac OS already has AppleShare, Windows File Sharing, and FTP built
into the box. And I can hear B.G. saying “configure an ftpd, that’s
what the shell’s for!”.

But sure, nothing like having another way to skin the cat. Thanks for
sharing.

We’ve also thrown large media files between countries using Skype…

Well, scp/rsync-over-SSH is more my thing (although I have been known
to WebDAV), but when you need to quickly punt a few dozen megs of OSC
recordings from a random PowerBook in Dortmund to another random
PowerBook in Brussels, (pseudo-)peer-to-peer is a less-brainer.
