    I’m on a pretty fast connection… not cable internet or anything. I don’t know what the hell it is… whatever one step down from cable is.

    I like the idea of cloud storage, but it literally takes me an hour to upload a single album. Is cloud storage for fast connections only?

    This is the first time I’ve asked a techy question on the internet in a long time. I’m scared. Go easy on me.

    • mwiik says:

      Sounds like DSL. I used to have DSL. It’s ok. So far I’m using Dropbox for small files. It runs in the background and likely won’t perceptively affect your surfing. Get started here: http://db.tt/CWtXuYm5 

    • Brainspore says:

      Dropbox is actually a pretty good solution for slow(ish) internet connections since you still keep all the files stored locally on your hard drive and it updates any changes in the background. You can also change the settings so it only updates when your connection is idle so it won’t affect your surfing at all.

      Also, if you use THIS referral I’ll let you access the shared folder I use for high-res naked photos of the ten people you find most sexually attractive. http://db.tt/92tuwY1

    This blog entry would have been cleverer had Rob inserted a hack to replace all db.tt links to his own referral URL.

    How long until  they’re shut down by the feds??

    More on point, Rob, I used your link to sign up and only got 2gb of clouds.  How can I get more clouds??

    • dculberson says:

       Replying to my own self ’cause I’m cool like that.  I got an email from them:

      “Thanks for registering for Dropbox! For accepting [Rob]‘s invitation, we’ve awarded you 500 MB of bonus space. You now have a total of 2.5 GB on Dropbox!”I guess I should have read some sort of instructions or terms or conditions.  Now I need to refer 13.5 gibs of peeps.

  86. leidentech says:

     Why I remember back in the day when 1k was enough… well enough to run but not really enough for anything worth talking about but the 16k expansion pack cost more than the computer and didn’t really work right because the connection would jiggle every time you typed on that POC keyboard and freeze the whole thing up…. Ah, but sonny, you can’t barely fit a favicon in 16k anymore so what’s an extra 500mb amongst friends – or, acquaintances if the familiarity of “friends” shocks your sensibilities – “friends” is after all a bit of a stretch for the fellow travelers who just happened to intersect on this vast internet of tubesthings wanting free stuff. http://db.tt/4PLMuqzU
