Dropbox

Postby Teh Russians » Tue May 13, 2008 6:34 pm UTC

I just got my hands on a beta invite for Dropbox, and I must say that it is the easiest online file storage and syncing app I have ever used. My favorite feature is that it automatically designates a public url to every file that you put into your public folder on your computer.

Anyone else here use it? If so, what do you think?

Also, I have 7 invites if anyone wants them. (post or pm me your email if you want one)
sorry no more invites left.
I have no more invites, but people who I gave them to might give you one if you post/pm them your email

I've been moving files back and forth and so far it has worked flawlessly. Integrates perfectly into Vista, just like another drive.

Thumbs up.

I also have invites now. PM me your email address and I will give you one.

Just FYI, to the people posting "soandso at gmail.com", don't you think the bots are probably smart enough by now to recognize such simple things? Same with adding "nospam" or "remove" to the address. You need to be a bit more creative, or at least a little less easily parsed, to keep ahead of the bots. (i.e. "gmail.com, same name as here" or "banana@gmail.com, replacing the fruit with 'foo'".)

I always love free internets space! Could someone send an invite over to: ...tries to think of witty conventions... screw it. banana@gmail.com, except instead of banana, put "alex.greenough". Thanks!

So far I've been using xdrive.com, it gives you 5GB for free, and usually works pretty well. All you need is an aol account... I think I have about five now. (And before you try it, your account cannot have the word "porn" in it. Just a heads up!) :mrgreen:

Poor banana. But, these are the risks that one takes when they choose the funniest of fruits as their email. And not turning int l337. They should have spelled it: 54n4n4... actually never mind, that looks really obnoxious. :P

Looks similar to http://www.syncplicity.com/

Though, I only recently saw syncplicity because the CS Undergrads at my school got a mail about it since one of the founders is a graduate. Haven't actually used it. :|

Edit: And as far as I know you don't need an invite (I despise invite systems <_<)
