Here you are now. What?

There was this thing that...um...ummmm...what was it?

There was this website that someone posted about in 2003 that, like torrents, allowed you to upload some file to the webserver and then make a small url or some binary file out of it (about 2KB) in size and then when you sent that binary to the reciever and he could double-click the binary and download the entire file you uploaded.

I am not sure if this was the way it worked, but I remember having downloaded it and used it a couple of times. It either started with a B or a T. Bucket? Bouquet? Can't remember anything expcept that it had some client software you had to download that did the upload and the making the binary thing. Actually, I am not even sure if it had a client software, but I think I did, because that's how I used it.

The only way it was different from torrent was that it was not a file-sharing network. It was a private thing. You made that little 2 KB toffee and sent it to the guy you wanted to send your 3 MB file to, and he'd just unwrap the toffee and dig the 3 MB file out of it.

Any one?
