Opera Unite

So I was trying to figure out a way to send a friend of mine an 8GB ISO file and short of setting up an FTP server I was at a loss of finding a "free" way to get this over to him. Came across this article about Opera Unite, anybody hear about it or use it? Pretty interesting and seems to be a free an easy way to share our large files securely. Just thought I'd share, plan on giving it a try tonight to see how it works out.

Can't you just upload it to btjunkie or thepiratebay or something, and then tell him the url? He would know it was safe cause it came from you...

Wouldn't that share it out with the rest of the world?

Not if you did it fast, and you both deleted the .torrent files from your computer and uTorrent as soon as he got it all. They would never get it all and it would be useless to them. Have him know that you did it, an just be sitting there at his computer when you do. It's unlikely that anyone will even come along and see it before he gets it downloaded.

I've downloaded partial torrents before and still had alot of complete images without getting the whole torrent.

Direct transfer > that mess; running it through a torrent could take a while depending on available bandwidth and whatnot, not to mention that some people have things to transfer that they'd rather not run the risk of having plastered on in the internet.
