    50GB is quite intense. Perhaps the uploads are 'pending' because they've already run out of space!
  5. Can get to the site, even registered as required (twice actually), but will it not send the email confirmation to allow access and use, therefore rendering it completely useless. Why do companies do this to us, heck even to themselves? LAME!

    Anyone want to bet how long this incarnation of a DotCom website is going to stay up and running? Im betting every police force that has a internet section is just waiting to pounce on this guy. Im wondering if Mr. DotCom continues to do this because he likes negative attention......

    Had some of the same problems but went to the site today and was able to login. I expect these problems are caused by millions trying to set up accounts and will go away in a couple of weeks.

    Maybe they actually need money from paid tiers before they can offer the 50GB free space. What ever the problem may be, my Internet is practically too slow to support on-line storage of any amount.

    @ St1ckM4n Yes this online storage take solely depends on how fast the upload speed of your internet connection is...Until upload speeds are higher like almost half of what the download rate is..Then this cloud storage might be worth considering...

    @plat
    You may be correct in your assumption that DotCom is working with/for the feds. We havent heard much lately about him in the news. Im guessing the govt did something like they did for that lolsec guy. Heres some capitol, go setup a website to catch and track ppl who like to download pirated content. And here is everyone posting about going and registering on the website. I wouldnt go to that website even if you offered me cash.

    Yeh coming to think of it.why would I have the same thing running and it's the reason why am in prison.If it were me..only how I would still run it is if the feds cut a deal with me to either shorten my prison sentence or I gotta still run the buisness to pay of depths...He really gotta love setting up online storage for people around the world even in prison..Yeh right.lmao..I ain't uploading a single text file there.I am sure it's being monitored.
