How to send big files over the internet: GE.TT

Ever have a file you want to send and it’s just too big for e-mail? Or you want to send it to a large number of people? I’ve got a great service for you: GE.TT!

Yes, that address is ge.tt in order to come close to spelling the word “get”... get it? Well at least it’s easy to remember.

When you load the page, you will be greeted with a simple screen asking you to “select files” to share. Clicking the button allows you to navigate to a file you want to distribute and as soon as you press OK the file starts to upload. No need to login or register or download a plugin, just click and go.

The cool part is that you don’t have to wait to share a link to your file. It’s ready in a few seconds even while the file is still uploading so you don’t have to wait forever in order to copy and paste the link into your e-mail to share the file. The people receiving it don’t have to wait either; the file will actually be available to download to them before it’s done uploading from your end. And once you have made a share, you can upload more files into it and they will show up to anyone who has the link you mail out. It’s simple and easy and works great.

There are a few limits to the service without a login. Files are deleted from the share after 30 days. There are no published file size limits and I’ve sent a file that was over 800 megs which is fairly huge.

Enjoy!

PS. Just a bit of a rant about e-mail etiquette: don’t send large attachments. Ever. Because people rarely clean out their e-mail in-boxes, those large attachments just sit there forever taking up lots of space. Just because you can send a whole string of e-mails with 6meg picture files doesn’t mean you should. Adding 40megs to someone’s e-mail directory is not a kind thing to do to a friend and many e-mail clients don’t allow the deleting of attachments without deleting the whole e-mail. The solution: Ge.tt! (And, no we are not sponsored by them. In fact I don’t know how companies that offer tons of free bandwidth and storage stay in business let alone kick back $ to websites that send them traffic. wink )
