[nSLUG] Dropbox

Hi Chris,

I use Dropbox for 'throw-away' or 'share-with-friends- and-whoever’ storage only, so no experience with massive files going up or down there.

As far as downsides of Dropbox go:
It is great if you don’t mind all your data being under the control of someone else’s proprietary software, and If there are no security expectations. I would never store private info (that I want to keep private),  or anything of commercial value, in their server farms.

Regards,
Corrie
