Recovering from a summer of building a house....but in the mean time...a great resource for transferring large files.

This summer I spent five weeks in Arkansas with my parents and sisters (I live in Arizona). Last summer, my BIL had a car accident and is now paralyzed. At the time of the accident, he and my sister were in the process of building their first house (they live in a small mobile home right now). Needless to say, he can no longer work on the house. So my 67 year old dad has taken over the building, along with the help of my sister (who is taking care of her husband, raising 3 and 6 year old little girls, and running 3 chicken houses), and my mom. Building is sometimes sporadic and most of the time it is just my dad working there by himself. 

So, this summer I became my dad's assistant. I helped wire, caulk, tile, install fans, make a tub and counter fit in a bathroom that was too small, and many, many other tasks. I went to bed exhausted every night but feeling accomplished. Needless to say, I did not get in much computer time. Add to that, they live in the middle of nowhere and have a monthly 5GB limit on their internet and my phone had no service out there. I was basically forced to take a 5 week technology hiatus. It was kind of nice, once the twitching stopped.

I tell you all of this to explain why I haven't blogged much this summer, though I have been writing down some great topics and resources. So look for more blogs shortly.

In the meantime, I found another blogger who made this GREAT resource to help you find ways to transfer large files. Sometimes that is the most frustrating part of technology; the limit on how large of a file we can transfer. As we become more and more dependent on technology for work files, managing personal documents, and creating/sharing videos and pictures, this is going to continue to be a growing problem.
