Fail Share: File Proof

I’ve been using Pando here and there since a helpful review in Wired. Anyone familiar with BitTorrent or programmes like Soulseek might think it’s too simple. But that’s the best thing about it.

You can send packages of up to 1GB at a time to friends. They’ll get an email to let them know. Once they’ve downloaded the Pando client, they can open their package and play.

Fast, clean and usable. I like it. It’s a great way to pick something particular for someone particular. A really satisfying way to share.

But if you think you might not be getting through with Pando, or any other site you use, you can try this:

Downforeveryoneorjustme only does one thing. You enter a URL and see if a site is down for everyone or just… you get it by now. Thanks to Iain Tait for this spot of helpful advice.

Without good advice, anyone can be an expert at failure. Think demux is now two weeks old. Some friends have shared thoughts about the site. Some people even appear to be reading it regularly.

But what do you think?

If you can post a helpful comment, I’ll have a better idea of where to go next. You’ll get a better read the next time you visit.
