    I don't think there are any catches. I'll let you know. Then if I am using it to house photos and such, Why would it matter if there are popups and such ??

    Popups are annoying but it wouldn't bother me...
    The only problem i always have is the stupid domain name... If it had a www.Whatever.com type name i'd go for it but nobody will ever remember the .filefarming.com...
    Whatever though, i'm definately gonna think about it...
    Thanks a lot,
    Jack

    Popups can be easily blocked... What's annoying and takes some doing now is em flash ads, while of course keeping flash for other things :eek:

    After 100 GBs transfer gets used in a given month, it probably will close in a not grascious method. So watch how big that thing gets. I've seen some sites, with actually forums I've visited have to change hosts from time to time as they grew bigger for just this reason.

    Oh, and don't get slashdoted, lest you start having to throttle BW useage/else the ISP does :eek:
