That site looks good, but it has a file size limit of 400 KB (which should be okay for sounds).

Don't be so cheap. Go out and pay for some hosting. You can get basic hosting for as little as £12 a year.

Hosting costs money in bandwidth as well as the cost of buying and maintaining servers, why do you expect to get that for free?

And Kid is right...

Well still, my parents wouldn't approve...

Anyway, nrg is fine, it has enough space. So expect the files up in a week

EDIT: Hrmm, this is gonna take a LONG time, I can only upload 9 files at a time and it takes 15 min. Isn't there a host out there that can host about 70 MB, and where you can upload a whole folder in one go?

hmm, pooky, i know you don't wanna pay, but you aren't going to get a "perfect" free site. Just get a job and get some money biggrin

www.hostony.com is where i recently bought my host. 12$ i month, or 77$ for 6 months. ( the plan i got - special)

This host is also used by Slick & Marek. (well, slick 'ownes' it, but they are partners...dont ask, you will see soon)

The thing is, though, that I am doing this for you guys. So spending 12$ per month so you can have my sounds is silly. Anyway, I found a site that may work, we'll see what happens.

97 fxhome films that were hosted on zed were reported as broken when our server last checked. I'm not sure if this is a permanant thing or if they will be back to normal soon. The zed pages say its down for upgrading, but like most free sites I expect they will disable remote linking soon.

If zed does return back to normal our server will make all the movies live again at the end of the day
