Hello world, does anyone know of a file sharing service that gives *direct links* to a shared file? I'm talking a link that can be used on a website like Dropbox used to do that will display/use the file correctly on the website.

I want to share an option with Lexiconga users so they can display their fonts using custom CSS before I start working on a font uploader, but I'm coming up empty so far.

Any ideas/advice are appreciated!

Unbelievably, GitHub is the easiest-to-explain free option for hosting arbitrary files in order to accomplish what I'm looking for. It's totally unbelievable that GitHub Pages is (still) a free service.
