Really five gigabytes for free... They don't have the fastest servers, but hey... it's for free !
I use it for displaying my collection inside this forum (if somebody is interested) and for friends to show them my madhouse hobby, try the link at the bottom of this post to see what i mean...
I used Jalbum ( http://jalbum.net/ )to have some kind of point and click picturealbum, i was sick of f*cking around in some html-editors and pasting and formating every single picture like an idiot :-) Jalbum is available for WINDOZE and (yeahh!) Linux (i was happy about that - i did not use WINDOZE really for some five years - only for games).
But I think better to register in the site, so you can have a private photo album, where you can delete some in the future, if you want. The nice thing about this site is that you can keep the original size of the picture, or resize it.
I had my "homepage" on their servers, simply done with Jalbum.
Their servers were not reliable for me most of the time. Sometimes everything went well, the next day FTP was unavailable, next time there were always disconnects during ftp transfers.
I could live with this, but the crucial factor for me to quit with www.5gigs.net was (and i had overlooked that while registering there) that there is a limit in filesize. No file above some 3 Megabytes in size is allowed ! Since i wanted to host some small vids of my watches i uploaded those vids of course... and always wondered why they were not there... and why they did not appear on my "homepage" - until i noticed that their servers deleted them directly after uploading. I did not see that immediately because i always uploaded the whole "homepage" and everything seemed to went well..
www.5gigs.net is nice for free, but to be honest, who needs to fill 5 Gigabytes with files sized smaller than 3 Megabytes ?
So i would recommend this only for some small files and "simple homepage crap".
They say they store the pics for 12 months and they even allow hotlinking (which is true, i linked some pics stored on their servers here on the forum in the last months - works like a charme!)
THE BIG DISADVANTAGE: Everything seems to be in german only ! I looked here and there without success, there is no english version it seems. No problem for me, since german is my native language, you mileage may vary...
