You’re probably wondering what a Dropbox is. A Dropbox is a free service that lets lets you store your precious photos, docs, and videos online. More than that it even allows you to share them easily with friends, family and work associates. With a Dropbox you never have to email a file to yourself again. These are just some of the many benefits you get from having a Dropbox and I recommend everyone to get one. And I’m not doing it just because by doing so I get an extra 500 MB of space for every person I sign up! Up to 16 GB worth. I should also mention that every person who signs up under me also gets a 500 MB of bonus space!
What You Get When You Join Dropbox
I’ve probably missed out the most important feature about having a Dropbox. Once you have uploaded a file into your Dropbox it automatically save to all your computers and phones. Before having a Dropbox it used to be such a pain retrieving a photo I’ve taken with my HTC phone so I could use it in a post. Now all I do is access my Dropbox via the WordPress Dashboard. I no longer have to curse when writing a post on my MacBook air because the image I’m looking for is on my PC. Now I just make sure I save the image to my Dropbox and it is instantly available to my MacBook air, and my Phone. This means I can now show mates stuff no matter where I am.
At the moment I’ve got over 5 GB of free space but I’m pretty sure I only started with 2 GB when I first joined. If you join by clicking a link on this site you get an extra 500 MB giving you 2.5 GB of space. Once you’ve joined you can refer your friends earning 500 MB with each referral up to a nice 16 GB of space. You can even earn extra space immediately after joining without getting one referral. It’s so easy to do too.
The first thing you do upon joining is to click the “Getting Started” tab and complete the following seven steps.
Take the Dropbox Tour
Install Dropbox on Your Computer
Put Files in your Dropbox Folder
Install Dropbox on Other Computers You Use
Share a Folder with Friends or Colleagues
Invite Some Friends to Join Dropbox
Install Dropbox on Your Mobile Device
I’ve completed all but the sixth one and I now have 5.75 GB of space. I don’t actually recall how much you get from completing each step but whatever it is it all adds up. You can even earn space by connecting it to Twitter, FaceBook and by following Dropbox. 125 MB for each action.
I could go on and on but I’m sure I’ve given you enough to entice you to join. Did I mention it was free?
Ellen Degeneres arrived in Australia the other day, to copy Oprah’s visit to do a show at Sydney’s Opera House. Not very original if you ask me. Personally I couldn’t care less where she goes because I have just as much interest in her show as I did in Oprah’s, zilch!
Nope what bothers me is the way all the demented Aussies are throwing themselves at her and Portia, speaking of which I feel she looked stunning with long hair but her present hair cut just doesn’t do her justice. But what do I know, I’m just a bloke.

I understand that Ellen has her following but she’s just a talk show host! She’s not a rock star. She hasn’t invented a cure for cancer or done some huge humanitarian deed or anything. She’s just another human being who I believe doesn’t deserve all the adulation. And yet Ellen fans line up for ages just to get a glimpse of her. Really. And then I saw this Aussie bloke who admitted to being close to tears upon meeting her. Really? All I can say is that guy must be an impostor posing as an Aussie because it’s always been my understanding that it takes a lot more than meeting a stray Yank to make us cry.
Still, Ellen is a tourist and as such she should be welcomed by us and treated to a great time while visiting our lovely country, but perhaps with a little less emotional onslaught. No screaming, no bursting in to tears and definitely no fainting at the sight of her. I reckon she would have a beter time in Australia if she could walk amongst us without having to be shepherded around by her security guards.
I read a post today from my mate Mitch titled The Secret To Success Is….. in which he posted a great video naming one specific thing that you need to be successful. While I agree with him that the reason he named can be very important I don’t believe it to be the sole factor. I don’t believe that any one factor can lead to success. Nope, in my humble opinion a person’s success is usually attributed to several factors. Over the weekend I went to the Australian Grand Prix and whilst I wanted Alonso to win in his Ferrari the person who actually achieved success was Kimi Raikkonen in his Lotus. While his successful win can be attributed to a team effort a lot of it due to the Kimi’s personal attributes. Had someone else been driving the car it could well have been a different result.
