Dropbox and other web 2.0 apps
Authored by: gabester on Oct 08, '09 10:26:30AM

I've heard of Dropbox before but honestly, I'm a bit adverse to putting my content out there on "the internets". I'm looking for a solution that can work without an external internet connection or a login to some kind of service; hence the specification of bonjour/openconf - I'm just looking for something to accomplish this on the local network quickly and easily.

I understand your wariness. What happens if everyone sticks with Dropbox's free 2 GB and nobody buys any extra space?

I am a big Dropbox advocate too, like the GP poster, but am also keeping a copy of my Dropbox sync'ed to my server occasionally.

That said, it's hard not to love Dropbox. They really get this whole "cloud" business right, and it's so seamless across Mac, Windows and Linux. I really can't live without it now.
