Dropbox supports sharing content across multiple accounts. On the Dropbox website, using the account you wish to share from, create a new folder (e.g. "my project") In the top toolbar, select "Invite to folder", enter the email addresses for the recipients (make sure it's the email they already use for their Dropbox account). Each recipient will get an ...

On Linux, the Dropbox client is subject to a default system limit on the number of directories it can monitor for changes. There is a warning regarding this, along the lines of: Unable to monitor filesystem Please run: echo 100000 | sudo tee /proc/sys/fs/inotify/max_user_watches and restart Dropbox to correct the problem. This comes up often ...

They haven't outright banned it so I think it's safe to say that you are allowed to host websites on Dropbox. There is a wiki page, "Hosting Websites with Dropbox", (that includes information that was hosted on the official Dropbox wiki section) about how you could set it up via CNAME pointing. If you are worried about bandwidth, see Arash F. post on the ...

There are 4 that I know of: http://bitbucket.org/ (for Mercurial Version Control) http://github.com/ (for Git Version Control) http://www.codeplex.com/ http://sourceforge.net/ The big difference in features are that options 1 and 2 seamlessly integrate version control and allow you to have public and private projects. So you will be able to work with ...

It is not possible to upload files other than image and video files to Blogger. You would have to use other file sharing websites like Dropbox to share such files. Also, your Google Drive link works perfectly fine, feel free to use that link to share the same file with other people.

The only free service I was able to find that allowed up to 1 GB files was Pando. From their info page: With a free account, you can send files that are up to 1 GB each. (That’s bigger than many people’s whole email account capacity!) You can store up to 5 GB on Pando’s servers at any given time.

You can now host static Web applications using the static web app console that was released with dropbox.js. The dropbox.js release announcement has a bit more detail, and points to a sample application.

One possibility is that the other "Anonymous" visitors are actually you visiting the page multiple times. Since it does not require authentication, it typically leaves people as anonymous until they do something that identifies them.

I'd just ask people to email you the photos. Everyone has email, not everyone uses Flickr or another photo-management system.

Unfortunately yes. The request to resolve this issue is pretty high in the Dropbox Votebox. Please vote for it. You could try alternatives to Dropbox like Wuala or SpiderOak. In these applications the shared space is taken only from the user that started the sharing. The privacy features are better too.

An .app is not a file, it's a folder. Mac OS X just hide that to make it easier to launch. And since standard web-based file uploader can't upload folders, you'll have to put it either in a .dmg or .zip it, to upload it.

After multiple tries I was still getting the "unable to monitor filesystem" error. I finally figured out why: 100,857 Files, 15,009 Folders I had to bump my max_user_watches to a higher number.

The whole purpose of the site is to get people to download programs bundled with adware/spyware/malware etc. There are plenty of user submitted ratings of the site on Web of Trust: http://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/lp.ilivid.com I would think they got their impressive Alexa ranking through browser exploits from people that downloaded files from their site. ...

The simplest solution I can think of is to set both of their Share settings to "View" or "Comment". This will prevent either from editing the document. But my guess is that you are looking for something more like the restricting of "adding" or "removing" by a valid editor. This is also changeable in the "Share Setting" but affects all those the document is ...

Yes, it is possible. First, Change the directory permission to public in which your mp3 files reside. Copy the folder Id, that will be at the end of url when you are inside the directory. It will be something like this 0C2QKl-TsV6cVTE7wbWNOelRiRlk Next you can access the mp3 files using ...

Forrst allows you to share code (and screenshots/links) and discuss them, currently in beta and invite-only but due to open up soon. Here's an example post:

I know you've said free, but Amazon S3 would be very cheap for the level of use you're looking at. Storing a 1 GB file on their reduced redundancy service for a week (would that be enough time for everyone to get it?) would be about $0.025 and the bandwidth cost would be $0.15 per GB (you first GB is free). If your total monthly bill is under about $0.50 it ...

Do you have an allocation for a web site through your ISP and how much space does it offer? You could simply upload the files to a subdirectory of that with an html file that lists the files (don't call it index.html) and then just mail your friends the link. The can then right click and download the files directly. Obviously this only works if the total ...

What happened to the good old Torrents? The network isn't illegal or anything, it doesn't cost anything and if you want to share that 2 GB of SLR pictures with 108 other people, it's about the easiest thing to set up. Well, that only means that someone has to explain the setup of a Torrent client to all of them, whereas the geek in the crowd can create the ...

I'd suggest using something like Flickr. Your guests would need to have accounts, but if they use Yahoo, they should already be able to log in. Flickr saves the original copy as well as provides smaller copies, so you can pick and choose. You should create an open group and let your guests upload to that group.

All you need is Dropbox. You can easily share big files with your friends and there is also an option for public shares. One folder that whatever you're putting there has a public link to it, so you can share it. The only limitation is the 2GB for free accounts, but you can go up to 10GB if you'll invite people with a special link. Both you and who ever is ...
