Hi Guys.Can someone recommend a free File hosting site,and is secure, and dead simple to use? Thanks. 🙂There are many,but sooner be recommended one.Sending anything by Gmail,is a pain.January 31, 2009 at 3:36 am #31045
May I suggest an alternative?As you are a keen computer user, and appear to be constantly expanding your horizons, why not set up a free website? You can get a free website with quite decent amount of webspace, multiple email accounts and subdomains, little or no advertising, etc with a minimum amount of fuss these days.On your website, you could choose to put nothing, and simply use the website as a free file host and email address/addresses.Or, if you chose to experiment, you could download one of the many free, and quite simple to use,website creation programs, and build your own personalised blog - creating your own website without using the set methods of something like myspace or facebook can be very rewarding.

I was concerned, that if I did this,I would have to be able, to write HTML Code. I have this site Bookmarked to learn,but as yet haven't had the time, to take these lessons. Maybe you could clarify, what is required in this area. Thanks Dak. 🙂http://www.davesite.com/webstation/html/January 31, 2009 at 5:02 am #31047
Its my opinion, and this is just an opinion, that the best way to learn to write html websites is to use a WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) web editor. There are many of these web editors available in both free and paid forms, and include such programs as Microsoft Frontpage and Macromedia Dreamweaver. Nvu is an excellent free editor.You can use tutorials and I am sure they would be useful, but I believe hands on editing of a website template is the best way to learn personally.Starting with a free html template, there are hundreds to choose from online, you use the editor to pick out parts of the template and replace them with what you want to put there.You'll have options of design view, split view or code view. In split view ( both design and code), as you touch something in the design view, the corresponding lines are highlighted in the code view. This helps you understand what code is performing which function, and where on the page it is located to achieve this. You'll be amazed at how fast you pick this up. In the meantime, you'll be able to build entire websites using the design view without needing to touch the code at all !!
