Send files of up to 1GB free

I have a new way to send a gigantic files. No, I mean really gargantuan files, up to 1GB.

Axosoft's TransferBigFiles is a nice, free alternative to YouSendIt, the web-based service program that only allows 100MB - unless you want to pay a fee.

TransferBigFiles lets you send up to five files at a time. I like being able to send a file to five people, too, though I'd prefer being able to blind-copy the recipients. Other features: You can password protect the file and get a confirmation that it's been downloaded. Files are held for five days and then deleted.

Chances are good that the folks at Axosoft will discontinue the service in a year (as did dropload.com, another file transfer site), once they discover how much competition there is and that they won't become millionaires with this service. But for now, let's start transferring files.
