What is a good file hosting site these days?

I used to upload files for the map vault on filefront(now gamefront), but they delete them after a while.
Also, linking from my dropbox account or something like that doesn't feel very secure either.
... so?

Also, when is TWHL going to increase the 2mb limit and allow for more than one screenshot? :\

It is now legal for me to drink alcohol in the U.S.A.

I've got this annoying problem with the windows command line. Every time I start it by itself or through some program( think cmd from "RUN" or a program when compiling in Visual) it shows extremely small text. Even if I try to modify the font from its properties, the next time it will still start like that.
I'm using Windows 8.1.

Does anyone know what the problem is?

Honestly.

Has somebody jumped in the Banished bandwagon?

It's totally addictive. And infuriating when famine suddenly strikes out of nowhere.

[EDIT] Also, bought 1kg of sauerkraut. The second fermented food I'm addicted to( the first one being pickled herring). Damn this shit is so good.

Multiplexers, demultiplexers, counters, flip-flops, registers... all these sounded really fun before.
Why does college make me hate things I used to be enthusiastic at the thought of studying them?

The exam is in less than a week and I still have no idea how to implement a simple counter with JK-FF and MUX. Fuck this shit! Nope, JK I have to pass haha.

In the quest of finding good nootropics, I've stumbled across Rhodiola Rosea.
It seems like it's one of the best supplements for any kind of effort. It works on improving memory and concentration too if that's the case - it's an adaptogen(idk how that's spelled).

In the past I've taken Lecithin supplements, but they don't seem to have any effect. I've also taken Gingko Biloba, but didn't really felt anything with this either(well it's actually written in the prospect that you have to it continuously for at least 6 months to see any effect).

But 2 weeks ago I finished a batch of 500mg Spirulin capsules. I don't know what kind of improvements they had on my concentration and memory as I didn't study very hard at the time, but I obviously felt more energetic and could get away with less sleep while feeling rested.
I want to take 1000mg capsules of Spirulin and couple them with Rhodiola Rosea. While Spirulin is more affordable, Rhodiola seems a bit... expensive.

Took one of these apart today:

It's a treasure for scavenging lots of wires, capacitors, resistors and whatnot.

Booted up my 15 year-old Pentium 2 today, played some levels from from the Shrapnel City and a bit of NFS2:SE.

Yeah, piece of cake!

Objectives:
I'm interested in a data acquisition API that can transmit over Bluetooth the sensor output of an android device. I'm writing the code in C++ since it's the only programming language I know so-and-so.

Any advice is thoroughly appreciated.
