They haven't outright banned it so I think it's safe to say that you are allowed to host websites on Dropbox. There is a wiki page, "Hosting Websites with Dropbox", (that includes information that was hosted on the official Dropbox wiki section) about how you could set it up via CNAME pointing. If you are worried about bandwidth, see Arash F. post on the ...

It is not possible to upload files other than image and video files to Blogger. You would have to use other file sharing websites like Dropbox to share such files. Also, your Google Drive link works perfectly fine, feel free to use that link to share the same file with other people.

The only free service I was able to find that allowed up to 1 GB files was Pando. From their info page: With a free account, you can send files that are up to 1 GB each. (That’s bigger than many people’s whole email account capacity!) You can store up to 5 GB on Pando’s servers at any given time.

One possibility is that the other "Anonymous" visitors are actually you visiting the page multiple times. Since it does not require authentication, it typically leaves people as anonymous until they do something that identifies them.

Backblaze keeps an always up-to-date copy of your data in their cloud. Once you get through the initial backup (can take a week), your data is always backed up with negligible network and CPU usage for only $5 per machine per month. It's also excellent software that feels like a first-class citizen on the Mac (not sure about PC). So, if you lose your house ...

I'd just ask people to email you the photos. Everyone has email, not everyone uses Flickr or another photo-management system.

Unfortunately yes. The request to resolve this issue is pretty high in the Dropbox Votebox. Please vote for it. You could try alternatives to Dropbox like Wuala or SpiderOak. In these applications the shared space is taken only from the user that started the sharing. The privacy features are better too.

You can now host static Web applications using the static web app console that was released with dropbox.js. The dropbox.js release announcement has a bit more detail, and points to a sample application.

An .app is not a file, it's a folder. Mac OS X just hide that to make it easier to launch. And since standard web-based file uploader can't upload folders, you'll have to put it either in a .dmg or .zip it, to upload it.

The whole purpose of the site is to get people to download programs bundled with adware/spyware/malware etc. There are plenty of user submitted ratings of the site on Web of Trust: http://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/lp.ilivid.com I would think they got their impressive Alexa ranking through browser exploits from people that downloaded files from their site. ...

The simplest solution I can think of is to set both of their Share settings to "View" or "Comment". This will prevent either from editing the document. But my guess is that you are looking for something more like the restricting of "adding" or "removing" by a valid editor. This is also changeable in the "Share Setting" but affects all those the document is ...

I know you've said free, but Amazon S3 would be very cheap for the level of use you're looking at. Storing a 1 GB file on their reduced redundancy service for a week (would that be enough time for everyone to get it?) would be about $0.025 and the bandwidth cost would be $0.15 per GB (you first GB is free). If your total monthly bill is under about $0.50 it ...

Do you have an allocation for a web site through your ISP and how much space does it offer? You could simply upload the files to a subdirectory of that with an html file that lists the files (don't call it index.html) and then just mail your friends the link. The can then right click and download the files directly. Obviously this only works if the total ...
