Hello, everybody,

http://news.slashdot.org/story/14/04/02/1355244/canonical-shutting-down-ubuntu-one-file-services

I uploaded some files there. Where else can I upload files ? (I look for sites which are for freedom and free sharing)

I'm currently in the process of moving away some files from my MediaFire, and Ubuntu One accounts so I compared all the free* web hosting services that I'm aware about. The best free software solution is (in my option) Seafile. You can register for free at https://seacloud.cc/ to get 1GB of free online storage (this is the maximum for any completely free* solution available). The upload size is limited to circa 100MB per file (bigger files are rejected with an error message). Other services are listed on this Wikipedia article.

* both as in freedom and beer

I registered a Seacloud account today, and I noticed that the web interface doesn't work without Javascript.

Openmailbox has also got a Gb of free space.

https://cloud.openmailbox.org/ (you need the Openmailbox e-Mail account)

https://www.openmailbox.org/ (Which is where you can get it)

While I registered today to testbed the service, I had frequent downtime issues using both their (Roundcube based) webmail, and (ownCloud based) online storage. Anyone else experiencing this?

I've noticed that openmailbox has been unreliable lately, too.

I looked at their forum, searching for the reason of the problematic connection, and found that they had a DDoS attack.

So that's why i had problems conecting to the email and forum of openmailbox... So thats mean a people created an email of this server is "infected" too?

No... A DDoS attack just overloads a server with requests, it doesn't "infect" anything.

If you're going to use Seafire, you might be interested in this Nautilus script that now support splitting bigger files to chunks which Seafire will accept.

They're "open sourcing" the backend code, they say.

mYself, do you still have access to Ruben's Libreplanet 2013 recording? I have it right here:

https://cloud.openmailbox.org/public.php?service=files&t=8c2af1e0bd8adf6429e0a0c36bc51f6e

Yes, Openmailbox (running ownCloud) doesn't require Javascript to download!

That link holds only the speech, but yes, I currently have four copies of them. But thanks anyway, mirrors can be invaluable.

The thing about JavaScript is that the last LibrePlanet videos are taking up almost 6GB (along with the raw recordings) and I will not pay for a service just to provide a link that doesn't require non-free JavaScript for download. Thankfully, there's Plowshare.

Why don't you just upload this to Archive.org?

Because their online file management tool suck. I cannot delete uploaded files and/or need to contact the provider to get my page removed. I ain't gonna stop you if you wish to reupload the videos, it's just that I won't do it until I see these issues resolved.

Check out OwnCloud providers or setup your own:
http://owncloud.org/providers/
http://owncloud.org/install/

OwnCloud integration is in Gnome starting with 3.08. I suppose this
means Trisquel 7 will include it:
http://owncloud.org/gnome-meets-owncloud/

I'd love for the FSF to provide such a service as part of membership
perks, like The Document Foundation does.

Meanwhile you can use the WebDav backend it provides, that's what I do
for now.

Yes, it seems to be pretty common.

I'm quoting from your link:

"This strategy is pretty bad for software freedom. It gives fodder to the idea that “open source doesn't work”"

I want to point out that gnu.org endorses every free distribution - no matter how bad it works - in a completely random ranking order.
Few weeks ago there were totally unusuable distros among them, like utoto or blag and now the first position on the list is "dragora".
I wonder whether this creates the impression that "open source doesn't work"....

They're in alphabetical order. Better is a pretty subjective thing.

More stable and beginner friendly is much less subjective. In my opinion, Trisquel is more of those two than the other distros on the list.

Dragora is not very usable unless you use very little software or want to compile everything from source (very few packages), and Dynebolic seems to be dead. However, the last 4 are usable.

The only thing that causes some free or open source software not to work is the lack of funding, which is usually caused by the fact they can't easily sell it, as one user buys it and then uploads it to his own website, then anyone can get it without paying.
