Sending Big Files For Free

Quick note, I used to use a lot to send big files. Then they started charging for it. I paid for a while, but now I've discovered, which is free and lets you send up to 1GB. The upload is slow as you'd expect, but that's not's fault.

As per their site:

"If you have ever experienced or YouSendIt Enterprise Server, you already know the answer to this question: You find yourself effortlessly working with its easy to use interface, having complete confidence that your data will get to its destination without errors, risk, or confusion. Feeling comfortable with the knowledge that your sensitive information is completely safe and secure."

So there you go. Use it in good health.

Acronyms ASAP

Nice new acronym search tool called Clean interface, looks a bit like Teoma. Anyway, you get a search box and a button. You can also choose a language and choose Word or Acronym. If you choose Acronym and type in an acronym, you get a list of matches. ADA got me thirty results including Americans with Disabilities Act, American Dental Association, Average Daily Attendance, etc. It also bolds by importance, I assume by popularity somehow, but it doesn't say anywhere.

If you select Word in the search interface and type in a word it will return results that have that word in them. I typed in the word "random" and got 103 results (!) including Random Access Memory, Random Matrix Theory, and Random Amplified Polymorphic Dna (fancy!).

This looks like it will come in handy.
