After a couple of attempts I was able to download both files. I totally agree with you about the unreliability of ge.tt. I wonder if their paid subscription is more robust: if so I would be willing to contribute financially. In any case I find it hard to believe that a free file server could be guaranteed to store files indefinitely.
Anyway, all the readings uploaded so far for this project are now safely stored on my hard drive.
Hold through folks, no need to buy subscriptions, I did already rent a server in France, we "only" need to put an upload system on it and wire it up to the rest of the growing Legamus tools.
I always was happy with ge.tt and found them quite excellent. (By the way, storage is indefinite only for registered users, and then it's limited to 2 or 3 GB. Anonymous uploads expire after 30 days.)
Your problems with ge.tt make me think that instead of aiming for a perfect upload system in about nine months, I'd better put up something basic within the next three months!
In the meantime, may I suggest to use Firefox or Seamonkey if you're using something else at the moment? Do you use any other upload system that is purely browser-based and which works better (e.g. no operating system extensions or special software) ? The one on LV works better for you?
I'm asking this because ANY browser-based upload system can get disturbed by network issues (within proxies, routers, browsers, ISPs) which do not behave 100% properly. If such a thing is bothering you with ge.tt, it might bother you with our future system, too. (But there, at least, I control the server and might add a Java uploader
