If you came here to read about floppy disks you're in the wrong
I just want to plug the online file storage service, Adrive
I needed to download a few episodes of a TV show before they were taken down from the channel's site. The downloads total to a few GBs and I have other stuff downloading that I don't want to interrupt. So I looked for an online service that would directly download files from the web. Fetch.io, which I tried first, was a disaster. I read about Adrive and tried it next and it seems like a great service. No-nonsense signup, 50GB free, it fetches the files fast from 3rd party sites (~10 mins/GB - would be dependent on the host servers too, so YMMV) and it allows the use of a download manager with resume capability. I thought they deserved a mention.
