    Alright, I think this is the right forum for this question. In my apartment, I have a computer that is not hooked up to the internet b/c I can't afford to pay internet bills every month. So I use the internet computers at my University. Now, I downloaded this program I want to transfer from the university to my computer. Unfortunatly, zipped up it is over 2 megs. So, I figured I would split the contents up over several disks. Again, unfortunate, the exe file is 1.6 megs zipped. Does anybody have any suggestions of how I can get this from one computer to the other? My disks are only 1.44 megs, and I can't burn it onto a CD or use a big ZIP disk (can't read it at home). Anyone?

    You should invest in a USB FLASH disk, they're really cheap for the smaller ones, and very convenient for this kind of use. :)

    You can own a flash drive for less than $24.00 and transfer up to 128 MB from the school computer to your home or vice versa. They are small enough to carry on your key chain. Look at the San Disk model here. I use a larger version and they are excellent. By the way, the price above is your total...no tax, and free shipping.
