How do you mange your files on your computer and on the internet?

I use mediafire here and there, but i have my own website so sometimes i upload files to that via ftp. I dont suggest buying hosting just to do this, but its good if you have it lying around.
Macs come with apache built in, so on occasions i have also ploped files in the public folder and portforwarded my router.
I tend to share file links by goo.gl url shortener.
I tend to grab files using torrents too, but i never tend to share using torrents (because i dont have the patience to seed for that long).
Apart from that, i use my trusty little HP v135w 4GB memory stick. It is honestly the most amazing thing ever. it carries 4GB and its MINIATURE. Put it in Google Images (HP v135w) and you will see.
I always carry this around with me, and i have tons of stuff on it, from flash files to programs, images, and even repair PC repair software!
For £10 english money, this was a great buy. Its probably about $15-$20 in the US.

I run Apache on my Vista machine and my router is port forwarded. That's the fastest way to send a file directly to someone, just plop it in there. I use http://freedns.afraid.org/ for free DNS names so I don't have to remember my IP all the time.
To manage my Web site I use Filezilla. The actual layout of my site is a bit of a mess right now because I set it all up by hand but it works.
In my computer I have close to 100000 files so I have the typical music/video/pictures folders but inside I have very broad categories and subfolders that get more specific as you dig. It's slower to put them away there but it's a lot easier to find things than putting them all in together.
I use Winamp to tag my audio files.
I use Irfanview to do batch renaming/resizing, lossless JPEG rotation and lossless JPEG optimization on photos.

Total Commander for ftp upload-download and sometimes local management, but the Windows Explorer in windows 7 is pretty fast for me.
This question is so vast in meanings .

I did use iDisk from http://me.com but I wasnt going to keep paying 100 a year. http://dropbox.com is awesome but the web UI sucks. It is basic and simple. Love the iOS app! I'd prefer http://box.net. Free version suits me fine and the web GUI and iOS App is awesome looking and takes advantage of HTML5!

I have a 2TB NAS device here configured as an FTP server. Most files are stored there and accessible from anywhere I want. At home I have Filezilla for such things, although on computers I do not own myself, I tend to use the built in 'ftp' client of Windows 7. Of course I also have a flash drive with me for quick backups.
