File Hosting

More NYAF 2008 photos are coming, not to worry; I've just been a little distracted because I've been looking for a file host. After two days of searching I've chosen for Amazon S3. There's a lot to like about Amazon S3 and to be honest it's the CHEAPEST FILE HOST ON THE PLANET. Trust me on that one. Amazon S3 is pay as you ago, as opposed to subscription based like everybody else. Amazon S3 is only a files host, so you can't run PHP or Perl or anything. And there has been a few downtimes in the past. I personally don't care; the way I plan to leverage S3 makes downtimes negligible. In some ways Amazon S3 is cheaper than free because I don't have to worry about some free file host suddenly dropping my content. Remember, Amazon survived the bubble.

So yeah, that's what I've been up to. This all started when Google wouldn't host the Electroplankton WAV pack. They have a max upload size of 10 MB and the file is 12MB.

respect: Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3)
