Another Tool to Share Large Files: senduit; What's a tumblelog?

We are often asked about tools to quickly and easily share large files over the web. This is often an issue since many email services have caps on the size of files for emailing. Last week, in this blog post, we mentioned podmailer. It's free but requires a download. Today, another service named senduit. It does not require a download but can only handle files 100MB or smaller. In ssence, you upload the file to a server and then share the URL with those who want/need the file. The URL itself expires after a specific amount of time (30 minutes, 3 days, 1 week, etc.).

senduit comes from davidville.

This company also offers Tumblr, a free service that lets you create tumblelogs. What's a tumblelog? It's a type of blog (think scrapbook) and likely for some of you (as it was for us), a new term for your Internet vocabulary.

From the FAQ:

To make a simple analogy: If blogs are journals, tumblelogs are scrapbooks. You can also look at tumblelogs as slightly more structured blogs that make it easier, faster, and more fun to post and share stuff you find or create.

They host on their server but do make it relatively easy to host on a domain you choose and register).
