AltME: Syllable

OVF seems to standardise all the settings that usually didn't transfer, so that's good
Kaj
We're hosting on Amazon S3 and several other places. I appreciate the Box.net offer, but it would just complicate our infrastructure further. A lot of our time over the years has gone to managing that, so I am firm on simplifying things

np - wasn't trying to push it for any personal benefit - just thought you might be interested in any free, significantly sized offline storage. Most of the other free ones are only around 5 GB
although I think MS also has 25 GB or so with SkyBox
Kaj
I understand, my only issue is with our management effort
AdrianS
can anyone see if this link to the VM works? It's hosted on SkyDrive
Kaj
It wants cookies and it says it will then use my Live ID, which I don't have
AdrianS
I'm not sure if the link allows you to download the file, or only to view it on SkyDrive
haven't used SkyDrive so I don't know my way around sharing stuff
Kaj
Weren't you going to put it on Box.net?
AdrianS
they have a 100 MB file limit - dumb
at least for the free account
Kaj
Yeah, I saw that. Wouldn't be of much use to us then, either
Putting it on a Windows site where you need to log in would offend a large part of our audience
AdrianS
sure, I'm hoping you don't need to - did you try and it asked for creds?
there's different kinds of sharing - so I'm just trying them out
Kaj
I'd have to give it cookies first to find out for sure. Don't want to do that, either
This is the kind of trouble we get when taking extra infrastructure onboard
AdrianS
let me see if I can find some place like depositfiles - though the free downloads usually involve a countdown timer
dropbox is good for just giving a link with no hassle, but I only have 7 gb there and most is used up
