Free Dropbox Account

Dropbox is giving away free accounts.

Please sign up using my referral and we will both get an extra 250MB space. [ed GB to MB]

Dropbox is a folder you set up on your machine for sharing files with yourself or others over the internet. You can set up a folder for a specific friend, drop in a file and it will not only be backed up online but your friends will receive the file in the background.

The best part is that you can install dropbox on your home machine and at work and load in your files to have in both locations. If your work does not let you install the software, you will be able to use the website interface for install free sharing.

The free accounts offer you 2GB of storage, you can pay monthly for extra space if you need it.

I personally think that with the 2GB space it could be a good place for a simple offsite backup since it works in the background. and since you get an extra 250MB for signing up with my referral code you will get 2.25GB st start and an extra 250MB per friend you have sign up.


OMG Synergy FTW

So any of you geeks still using a keyboard mouse switch? If you don’t need to switch the monitor there is a great program out there Synergy. Synergy is a virtual mouse and keyboard switcher program that does not require a key press.

If you have 2 monitors (or more) you can set it up simply to switch your current mouse just by gesturing over to the second screen (second computer) just as if it was a second monitor on your single machine.

It also has a shared clipboard so you can actually copy some text from one computer, mouse over to the second computer and paste the text.

If you have multiple monitors on your desk hooked up to multiple monitors, you need Synergy.

You simply set up the machine with the physical connection to the mouse and keyboard you want to use as “Server” then configure the other machines as clients. You can set it up by Machine name, aliases and/or IP#’s.

Oh the best part… Windows, Mac, Ubuntu and more!
