    Kim Dotcoms MEGA?

    I have been trying out MEGA using Ubuntu 12.04, it really expects Chrome browser, so I have been using the repository Chromium and also Google Chrome. In many ways it works surprisingly well. However, the test I was mostly using was upload of a folder containing a total of approximately 650 small-ish files. In several tests over a couple of days now, I found that the browser crashed after some time. Inconveneint because the upload set then is not recoverable, and it seems not possible to collate, compare, whatever, the then partial upload.
    I then tried first compressing the files into a single archive file, and this uploaded fast without problem (65MB or so).
    I conclude so far that, for me, whatever is happening in the browser for multiple files, is not yet stable.

    Anyone any experiences?

    Edit: Just tried again, it crashed after approximately 150 files uploaded. The (Edit) memory used had increased from initial 20% to 50% (of 4GB) FWIW.

    Re: Kim Dotcoms MEGA?

    Yes I've read quite a bit about mega running into server and bandwidth issues regarding it's popularity. A lot of press was given to it's launch. Note that's just tech writers, I've never tried it, I've been using adrive for quite a while now and have a lot uploaded there, so changing clouds seems a bit of effort!

    Have you had a chance to try any larger files? Hopefully any initial launch bugs in the service will be short lived

    I am now trying a large single file, but after a few hours so far looking good, I notice that the (edit) memory is steadily getting eaten, steadily rising. this doe not bode well, but we will see

    Edit: typo for 'swap' read 'memory'. Now changed to read correctly

    no change in swap, but your ram usage went up 200MB

    I looked at the free option, but I couldn't find where the signup form said what I would be signing up for. It also didn't seem to say which would be the username or login. When you signed up, did you find any info like that? Can you post a link? 50GB for free is nothing to turn down if there aren't any hidden gotchas.
