Turns out I don't have enough space on my webpage for this stuff. And I'd like a solution without the limitations of sendspace. I'm hopeful that sharing files through google docs might be a solution... currently trying to work something out with frmky.
Have you tried dropbox ? They have a 2 gig free account (2.25 gig if someone invites you), that you can use to put stuff out there.

Do not let the dropbox always run. Upload/download and kill it. It is sometimes sucking your CPU resources (it is occasionally taking 5-15% of the P95's time, when "synchronizing" or so).

Transferring using Dropbox is a good idea that I hadn't thought of. And I happily give up 10-15% cpu time on occasion for the convenience of my files syncing without having to think about it. If anyone wants to try it and hasn't yet, http://db.tt/AORZTqM.

Does dropbox have file size limitations? That was one of the most annoying things about sendspace (aside from all the ads), when the size of files I'd like to upload are routinely bigger than 300 MB.

No, you have a total of 2.25GB when you first sign up for a free account. This can be filled with a single big file or lots of small files. Referrals increase your space, hence the shameless link above.

The real advantage of dropbox, though, is that it keeps files in your dropbox folder synced across your computers. In my case, I have it installed both at home and work. When I want to transfer a file between home and work, I drop it in a folder inside the dropbox folder, and within a few seconds it's at both places. Also, the department office has a shared dropbox folder. If I need to distribute a file to the entire department, I copy it to the shared folder and it's copied to the dropbox folders of everyone in the department. It's much more convenient than email attachments.

If you sign up with an .edu email address, you get double the space with friend referrals. You start at 2.25GB, and get 250MB with each referral with a normal account, and 500MB with an edu account.

How much secure is Dropbox? Personally I would not dare putting sensible (i.e. confidential) files there. Especially after I read this. Looks like the crypto at dropbox was somewhat suboptimal at that time. Let's hope that they have done something about this issue.

(on the other hand it should be no harm to put relation files of team sieves there.)

Yes, they have been criticized about being opaque about their security policies, outside of a vague promise not to look at your files and their best efforts at keeping them secure. I don't put documents with confidential information there, except perhaps an occasional exam or two. If someone steals my lectures, photos, grant proposals, committee reports, etc., I'm not too concerned. For me the convenience of no longer carrying and using a flash drive is worth the risk.
