    call me a suspicious old man, if you like, Tito,
    but i have my grave doubts about this new google
    product...

    i read a news article only this morning, i forget
    where alas, that by using this, you automatically
    agree that google may USE YOUR files in THEIR products..

    [imagine a movie you made with your camera going viral on
    youtube,..without your permission..
    ]

    if true, this is worse than useless for people who produce
    original files in the creativity or business line..

    i respectfully suggest you check out user agreements,
    eula, etc, very thoroughly, before using this..

    there are several established alternatives,
    where your files are safe from this, imho..

    Basically me too... ;)

    For MDL tools & bios mods = rghost
    For personal files = Skydrive

    :)

    How exactly does this rghost thing work, Tito? I checked and it allowed me to upload a file, listing me as anonymous. So can you create an account too? And what about..err..megaupload type of problems?

    Sorry for late reply... ;)

    Just like most of the file-hosting sites, you can upload as a guest (limited functionality), or create a free account (more functionality). Mostly simple interface, permanent link support (as release), picture preview support ~ so I like it. :)

    As long as I know, it is from Russia & so safe from US laws. :D
