Transferring huge files

It's a classic problem. One person has a giant file, maybe video or database or a bunch of large digital pictures, and needs to send it to another person. Email won't work, because sending a file larger than 2 megabytes can be problematic technically (and pretty rude, too.)

Sure, you could burn a CD and mail it... but this is the internet age, who has that kind of time.

Well, here comes DropLoad.com to the rescue. Upload the file, generate an email to your friend/co-worker, and they can download the file. As soon as they download it, it's gone. (Seven days later, it's also erased even if they haven't downloaded it.)

Easy, fast, free. What more do you want?

Update: One P&T reader also suggested YouSendIt.com as a reliable alternative.
