Seems like the tragedy of Megaupload is starting to creep up on other file sharing sites. I just noticed FileSonic disabled their sharing functionality and stating that only users that uploaded those same content will be able to retrieve them back.
The most noticeable feature is its log in form. So there is no way around this but to look for other file sharing sites.
Too bad. I used to like this site as their page is not too cluttered unlike other file sharing sites. Heck, even Rapidshare has too much graphics on the page now.
Ever get that frustrating MegaUpload message All download slots assigned to your country (?) are currently in use. Please try again in a few hours or install the Megaupload Toolbar for immediate access – with the toolbar installed, there are no more slot limitations for you! whenever you wish to download something? I had no choice but to look for that same file in rapidshare or some other file hosting site instead because at least they base it on the user’s I.P. then there’s a better chance for you to be able to download something than having it based on per country. Enter anonymous surfing, though I won’t go into detail what this concept is all about (as it is not the point of this post).
A good anonymous surfing service such as Anonymouse or Guardster free web proxy can be used to bypass the MegaUpload download limit. Steps to use Guardster to bypass MegaUpload Country limit are:
Input MegaUpload download link into the tex box (where you can see http://) below the “Translate a web page:”.
For “from” option, the default (depending on your Google interface) English to German will do the trick, although other options will likely to allow the hack too.
Click on the “Translate” after the language option, and wait for the MegaUpload download page to load, which allows you to start download immediately without the limitation by download limit per country.
