A friend of mine wanted to send me a bunch of files in a .rar archive. He uploaded it to rapidshare.com and then emailed me the link.
Now, the 2 minute wait was annoying, but I could deal with it. The fact that the counter measured time in decimal minutes (ie, It went from 2.0 minutes to 1.9 minutes) irked me, but I could get past it. The fact that the download page timed out several times because I forgot to go right back to it after exactly 2.1 minutes because *gasp* I was doing something on another page was just an example of bad web design.
After that came the final straw:
Does it hurt anyone else's brains? It certainly hurts mine. Maybe it's because I am dyslexic, but whatever, this is inconvenient and in my opinion flat out stupid. This is the year 2008, the internet should be way beyond this kind of thing by now. Megaupload might have a lot of advertising, but around 30-60 second waiting times and a simple 3 letter captcha make it far more usable, and I have never had any problems with it.
I implore you to never upload anything to Rapidshare, and if anyone knows of any better sites for uploading files I would love to hear some suggestions.
