Ever wanted to send a file across to a friend by mail, or copy it on to a floppy for taking it home?? OK...I know the answer to that one. So let me rephrase that...Ever wanted to send a really big file (let's assume that for email and copying on to a floppy, 5-6 MB is 'really big'!)...! You would have tried zipping it using a utility such as WinZip, and still the file refuses to lose any of its fat?!?! OK, so the zipped file is 4.98 MB...What do you do then??


I had reached this stage once, and a friend of mine introduced me then to SLICE32!! And boy! Was I happy!!


SLICE32 is a software (freely available on the Net, and pretty small too!), that ''slices'' your file into teenie weenie bits. You can specify either the size that each bit must be, or specify the number of slices you want the file to be ''sliced'' into. Once you have done that, SLICE32 proceeds with running the saw (you don't actually believe that, do you??), through the file, and splits it up obediently into the number of slices specified, or into the chunks whose size has been specified. Therefore at the end of this entire procedure, you have several small files that can be copied onto a floppy or can be sent as separate files. In addition to these small files, an executable file called SPLICE.exe is also created. If you are on the receiving end of these files, you need to save all these chunks into the same folder, and also ensure that the SPLICE.exe file is also saved in the same folder. When you double-click on the SPLICE.exe file to execute it, the different chunks are once again pulled together into a single file. Thus, the single huge file that was ''sliced'' into several bits, is not put together into a single file once again at the destination.


Fantastic, isn't it?? That's the way I felt about this software, and I have used it successfully several times. A similar product is WinRAR. However, I preferred this, perhaps because of its catchy name?!?!


Sadly, sometime when I was becoming fond of this software, driveway, and other sites appeared, offering 25 MB to 100 MB of online space for storing files, which could be uploaded and downloaded. It is then that I switched over to these. However, since these have become paysites, I think it wont be long till I switch back to SLICE!!!
