I have more big stuff to move than ever. Photos, movies, podcasts… I’ve gone from a kb world to one of MBs. Originally, I thought that my .Mac subscription would ease my pain. I love the concept of iDisk, and the storage is reasonable these days (1 GB), but the uploading performance is still dismal. I keep thinking that any day now I’ll be able to upload 100 MBs in less than 30 minutes. Nope.
I’m hesitant to use my personal server for big file sharing. This is where my websites and email live. Call me paranoid, but giving strangers “secure” access to even a few sectors makes me nervous.
There’s got to be a better answer. Maybe you can convince me that opening secure access to my server is really OK. Maybe you have some insight about the future performance of iDisk. Hopefully you have a completely new solution that I haven’t thought of. If you do, will you share it with the class?
