Alternatives to drop.io for sharing files

Subject: Alternatives to drop.io for sharing files

The best file hosting web site for sharing images and matlab files is
shutting down (thanks for nothing Facebook - grrrrr - they hired/
bought out the owners of drop.io).

Here is a list of alternatives, in case anyone wants to upload files.
I'll start looking at alternatives listed here.
http://alternativeto.net/software/dropio/?platform=online

None of the sites that I've looked at yet has matched the convenience
of drop.io. They either require you to create an account and login
(e.g. Microsoft Skydrive & most others) , require you to enter
captchas (tinypic.com, etc.) , don't show you the images immediately
(e.g. fileconvoy, etc.), have confusing URLs or annoying popups
(imageshack.us, etc.), require you to download and install stuff on
your hard drive, have annoying mandatory time delays with non-paid
accounts (4shared.com), or have other irritating features. drop.io
had none of that nonsense. If anyone has any good sites without any
of those annoyances, let us know.

Hey, here's a good idea. Why doesn't the Mathworks do what drop.io
did? But they'd probably want to keep out non-Mathworks customers,
and then we're back to the create an account and login annoyance.

Someone used uploadhouse in a recent message, and it seems like it's about the same as drop.io used to be. So far, uploadhouse is my favorite:
http://www.uploadhouse.com/

Try using this link if you want to upload images. No signup required, and images are viewable immediately at full size without any extra clicks.
