Question Big File Transfer

What is the easiest way to transfer a large file from a friends computer to my computer?

I am looking at transfering a 2GB file to a friends computer in the Uk, and I am on the other side of the world...

What do I do?

How do I do it?

You can use mIRC: http://www.mirc.com/

Or you could generate a torrent with MakeTorrent: http://www.softpedia.com/get/Interne...eTorrent.shtml
Then upload to a tracker of your choice and send it that way

Or you could use MSN, ICQ (or your chat client of choice - most support a resume of data download if you don't complete the file the first time)

Or you could burn it to a DVD and post it

Two things.

2. Want g-mail? Pm me ur email addres and I'll send u an invitation

Use a Gmail shell extention, and upload the file to it, and also have your friend access the same accout, the same way, and then he can download it. Should be simple as that.. i dont see why it woulnt work..
