    Review:


    * coolest first: works from behind firewalls, no need for a fixed IP address
    * security: looks fine to me, but need help to evaluate
    * installation: 2.2MB installer, 4.9MB footprint, no special configuration required
    * i hosted and accessed all sorts of file formats (but see "Usage" below)
    * you need a good internet connection, computer needs to be On to allow file access

    usage:
    * drag 'n' drop, plus, they've overloaded the right click, so you can let the server run in "background mode" and still host the file...
    * no limit to number of files BUT 10mb limit on individual file size

    good for:
    * limited audience type use

    all in all i'm thinking:
    * kewl app! :)
