Or you could just wait until folks started offering larger amounts of
space... and if you're specifically talking about MP3s, then hell, just go
to where they offer you 3 gigs already for storing MP3s,
including an (admittedly slightly buggy) upload tool that makes it
ridiculously easy to upload MP3s. And, I'm not saying all this just 'cause
one of the VPs took me out to lunch last week and gave me a free t-shirt...
:) I actually do think the site is pretty cool.
