Angry Web Hosting! Aaargghh!!!

Can someone give me the name of a free web hosting site that DOESN'T COMPLETELY SUCK. I need it so people can download stuff from me.

Free webhosting is going down the drain. You can find the occasional no-ads/no frills service, like I have on Dal.net, but that requires you to have a registered nickname on their IRC network (and why shouldn't you! #sam-n-max is there).

There is no such thing as a server with the details of which you speak... freeservers.com used to allow it, but now they are anal about it too . Y'know, what you could do is:
Upload the file to a server (like Geocities)
Then, make a quick page on geocities with a link to that file.
Give everyone the URL to that quick page.

I have to do that some times because i can't find a good server.

its a shame that ads have to overpower everything

but i found a free hosting site with no ads:
brinkster

i have a site there, but i didnt get working on it much, but there dosent seem to be a catch, or anything.
i think you get 30 mb's free

the only problem is that the url is kinda long, (eg.- my url is www27.brinkster.com/jollyr - dont make fun of it, im new to html, and im lazy )
but you can redirect it with www.cjb.net
witch will give you whatever.cjb.net
(cjb might use ads, cant remember)

just go to the hosting thing, and select the free one

i hope this helps

Oi, Geocities is slow, I'm reluctant to click on anything Geocities related.

Wasn't there some post here earlier where Metallus told us how to register to DAL.net? Ack, I need to do that.
