• Small gifts

    This is just quick check-in. I’m still on vacation, enjoying my family and, yes, lots of good food. The only bummer so far was that the blizzard forced a cancellation of an event I was looking forward to.

    The other thing I’ve been doing is using my new iPad. Ian was right. I have found the PDF Expert app combined with Dropbox very handy. I’ve already saved a small fraction of a tree by not printing papers.

    Aaron was right too, I’m enjoying Instapaper and other things he recommended like SugarSync. That’s really the point of this post, to plug SugarSync and to encourage you to try it. It’s an online backup and file syncing service that allows you to access your files from nearly any device, anywhere, anytime. In a typical day I use between four and six computers and mobile devices and now I can access my stuff from all of them. Cool!

    Best of all, SugarSync offers a free 5 gigabyte option. So, you can try it at no cost. In fact, by clicking on this link, you can get an extra 500 megabytes and I can too. So, you’ll be helping me and yourself. If you buy one of the larger plans, you’ll be helping SugarSync even more, which is still good for me since I want them to succeed.

    Yes, this is kind of like advertising. But I have not been compensated by SugarSync, and my admiration for their product is genuine. Try it if you’re curious. I’ll be happy to get the extra storage you’ll send me by using my referral link. Consider it a small holiday gift to me and to you.

    • Does it work like DropBox? I have dropbox and looking for something extra to create backups….I see you are using dropbox, why did u switch to SugarSinc? or it’s just something extra?

    • You don’t see that extra 500MB as compensation? I don’t mind, but given the focus of the blog, it puzzled me. Is that a technical term that only includes money?

      • @William – I didn’t say it wasn’t. I am trying to be up front and clear. What I wrote is correct. As of now, I have not been compensated. That is, I have not been paid for the plug in the post.

    • I will check it for sure this week, thanks for sharing and I think it’s good… you share something good and you get extra storage for that… I see nothing wrong in that.

    • Thanks Austin for sharing, today finally found some time to install it so I did it… thanks, 5 gb will be useful for sure!
