TL;DR: I made this: Instaud.io - quick and easy audio sharing for audio producers (music producers, singers, musicians, voice actors, sound designers...)
Over the past few months I've been working on a simple website for super simple audio file sharing. The target audience is musicians like you and me, who like to frequently share bits of work in progress on social networks or over IM, to get some feedback before finishing the final product and uploading it to the NGAP, SoundCloud, or what have you.
The main objective is to make it quick and simple, and I like to think that's what it is right now.
All you do is drag a file onto the page (or use a conventional upload button), wait for it to upload, and you get redirected to a very simple page with just a big audio player, under a short URL.
You can click on the progress bar in the player to advance to somewhere in the file, just like you would with any audio player. The difference is that the URL updates to include the time point you've selected. This lets you link to a specific point in an audio file, which makes it all the more useful for feedback.
Here's an example of an audio page: http://instaud.io/t
(That's my attempt at playing a simple version of Requiem for a Dream, but I digress.)
You don't need a user account or anything, you just get on there, upload your file, and you're done.
You have the chance to delete the file again as long as you don't close your browser. If you still need a file deleted after that, you can use the link in the footer.
I hope y'all find it useful!
I'm quite happy with the lighting and composition in this one. This 55-200mm lens does good stuff for its price too. Full size
Note: this is straight out of the camera, no adjustments made.

I'm out on holiday in Scotland for a week, and I got the chance to take a photo of something very very Scottish: a man wearing a traditional kilt, playing the bagpipes. Bonus long beard, too.
And that is probably the best photo description I'll ever come up with. [Larger]
Today my NG account turns five years old. That's half a decade, and it's pretty ridiculous how much can happen in that time.
Back in 2008 I met Fierra through some long-dead little crew we were both in, centred around the NGAP. Fast forward to September 2011, we moved in together (I moved from Belgium to England), fast forward again to a few weeks back, and we're engaged. So, thank you Newgrounds. You've made an impact on my life to say the least.
In addition, here's my first attempt at HDR photograpy (full size):
I think I'm going to make a thing of posting a new photo I took every two weeks.
For your visual enjoyment, the freezing dawn this morning, taken with deliberately wrong white balance setting.
This is a section of the old Town walls in Southampton in the UK. They've got RGB LED strips built in, which makes for some really nice looking light at night. (Full size)
