MSN as peer-to-peer piracy tool

Not that I was using it for that, but it’s really quick and easy file sharing — I hadn’t setup port forwarding since we got our new router, so MSN was the way to go for lots of little things… and today I had to send 750MB of photos to someone and didn’t have a working server here.

So, just for kicks, we tried via MSN. At this point it’s also worth remarking that ADSL2+ upload speeds kick butt — we were done in two hours fifteen apparently (I went AFK but believe MSN’s logs). And the file even got there intact. I know.
Not as much bandwidth as the Odyssey (car I drive), but quite enough for when you’re feeling lazy/out of blank CDs. Double ewe oh oh tee.
