Dropbox – Free 250MB space for both of us!

If anyone is thinking about joining dropbox.com, you can use my dropbox.com link. When you “Create a Free Dropbox Account” both of us will get 250MB of disk space extra free! yippie!

What is Dropbox?

Dropbox is software that syncs your files online and across your computers.
Put your files into your Dropbox on one computer, and they’ll be instantly available on any of your other computers that you’ve installed Dropbox on (Windows, Mac, and Linux too!) Because a copy of your files are stored on Dropbox’s secure servers, you can also access them from any computer or mobile device using the Dropbox website.

File Sync

With Dropbox, your files are always in sync.
Let’s say you’re editing a document at home. As soon as you click ‘Save’, Dropbox will sync this same file to all your other computers (and now your iPhone!) instantly and automatically. It’s as if you saved the document to all of your computers. This gives you the freedom to work on any of your computers and always have the files you need.

File Sharing

Dropbox lets you share files easily.
You can easily share entire folders or photo albums with Dropbox. Simply put the folders you want to share in your Dropbox, and invite people to them. You can also send people links to specific files within your Dropbox. This makes Dropbox perfect for team projects.


Online Backup

With Dropbox, online backup is automatic.
Any file you put into your Dropbox folder is automatically backed up to our servers. Even if your computer has a melt-down, your files are safe on Dropbox and can be restored at any time. While our free 2GB account is perfect for backing up your documents, we offer larger accounts (up to 100GB) for backing up your music and video collections.

Undo and Undelete

Dropbox lets you go back in time to undelete or undo changes to files.
Every time you save a file in Dropbox, Dropbox syncs it to our secure servers. Dropbox keeps a history of every change you make so that you can undo any mistakes and even undelete files. By default, we keep 30 days of history for all your files. We also have an unlimited undo option called “Pack-rat”.

What does it replace?

Dropbox is better. Dropbox replaces:

  • Emailing file attachments to yourself and other people
  • Using USB drives to move files between computers
  • Renaming files to keep a history of previous versions
  • Complicated backup software and hardware
  • And more!

XAMPP/Apache won’t start – Problem resolved!

The Scenario:

For developing web-sites, I normally would do my editing and testing within a local web development environent. I use an all-in-one development environment called XAMPP. With this software, I install it on to my USB flash drive and allows me to plug into any computer and allows me to do my web stuff anywhere I can get access to a computer.

As I was trying to use it on one of my computers, I found a problem…. Apache just won’t start!

The solution:

Basicially what I found out was that another program was using the ports that apache is trying to use. By default these would be port 80 and 443. I have skype installed and it auto-starts when I log into Windows Vista. This was using the ports in question. All I needed to do was shutdown skype and run apache. Hey presto, problem resolved.

Hope this is helpful to anyone who is having the same problem and in need of the solution. If you did find it useful, please feel free to leave a comment.
