(wasn't sure where to post this)
So, I've recently found the power of Dropbox.
I used to backup my web server's lampp (apachefriends.com xampp for linux) installation to a ftp mapped curlftpfs directory that went to my other tower in the house and thought twice about that.
A couple days ago, I was experimenting with Dropbox. I found they have a Linux release (.deb or .rpm) that works superbly well on Ubuntu 10.04.03 LTS SE.
I now have my entire /opt/lampp/* folder mapped to dropbox (via symlinks), and every night my server makes a .tgz backup of the whole installation.
I can now edit files on-the-fly between my 4 main workstations (at work, home, and mobile) whenever I need to without ssh, remote desktops, or any other special protocols. It's pretty slick.
I used to not see the point of Dropbox. As long as I kept backups wherever I needed, it didn't really seem necessary to keep a copy on some remote service.
Now that I see the power of this software, I can see its true potential. Of course the way I'm using it has a few security risks, but everything does.
I've extensively used it to rebuild my friend's record label website (http://www.blurredvizionstudios.com) and plan to use it to build all of the other sites I have on that server.
Eventually someone will release a dropbox-alike as a software appliance and it'll be usable by people who don't trust a third party service.
You could be looking for something like MyDitto.
That's ok...the ones already made will survive Iran.
If I start reading this site I'll be stuck at the computer for days.
They've scanned in nearly every catalog from 1940 to 2003.
Gads. Don't do it, IG. Keep away.
Any mention of free batteries?
Thanks IG. I looked up the 3 channel CB radio (portable) that I had as a kid. Love the fact that I spent 20 minutes looking up something that I spent months saving up for.
Lots of re-living my childhood.
CB radio ... one more thing killed by computers and the Internet. :(
Yes, a whopping 3 channel one as I remember. Had to buy crystal pairs for each channel (transmit and receive).
I think the cell phone killed the CB radio. The Internet reduced the popularity of ham radio. When I was in Florida I would hear commercials trying to get people interested in HAM radio. They focused on trying to convince the public they would be heroes during an emergency.
worth having one in the truck. Almost.
