We use dropbox for sharing large-ish files at work, but I never thought about using it for backing up my writing (or anything else personal). Good idea. 250MB of free storage. Plenty of room for word documents there.  afro

I use Dropbox so I can access files from both home and work. It's a great application.

I post stuff to myself on here. There's an admin area where I can attach files, or just post stories on a page. I use that quite a lot when I'm going to be away from home. There's a notepad function for each member, but I'm not sure how useful it would be for whole docs. It might be worth checking out, though. I think you get to it through the profile button. Never used it myself -- perhaps I should scratch

Turns out there wasn't one -- I thought there was, but there wasn't, so I've added one. Couldn't find one where you can attach files, but crit group members could always store stuff in the archive section by making a topic named 'Storage' or something, and then attaching word docs to their posts, or whatever you've got. If you find you can't upload a certain file extension then just tell me -- I can change that. If you don't want anybody else looking at the file you could always password protect a zip file before uploading it.

Happy Tuesday to you all!

Went to the Renaissance Festival in KC on Sunday with my family. I saw some elves, fairies, wenches, psychic’s, witches, kings, queens and noble men. 

 Saw two men joust and the loser head was cut off by the executioner. We ate turkey legs and drank some ale.

Monday’s always suck- but today is Tuesday’s, only four more days to the weekend . I’ve been taking a class of deep POV, lots of work involved. Spent the day dissecting my book, and it’s a bloody mess right now!   bangh

Sounds thrilling compared to my day -- I've been training all this week. The format is stuff your head with knowledge and then regurgitate it the next day in an exam. Passed one on Tuesday, which was quite nerve-wracking, because candidates have to get a minimum of 80% to pass, otherwise they fail and cannot try again for six months. I got 92%, but I'm still not wholly pleased with it, because they haven't told me which questions I got wrong. I'm guessing it was one of the ambiguous ones. There were several with no right answer. I have to take my last one today, and then I'll be back to work tomorrow. No rest for the peasants, huh? afro

Just had the AA man out to hit my car with a large hammer. Seems to have done the trick. It now moves.  scratch

My waterbutt leaked through a large crack under its posterior. When I turned it upside down I remembered repairing it with a fibreglass car repair kit over 20 years ago. Beyond repair now so I took it to the car. It wouldn't go in the boot so I tried walking it the two miles to the community recycling centre on my bike. It kept falling off before I reached the end of the drive and I have a pulled muscle so didn't persist. I used a saw to cut the butt in half (I can hear Lashslash's jokes fermenting as I speak). I was driving to B&Q on the way from the recycling when I remembered a 200 litre butt won't fit the car. I could saw it at B&Q and buy glue but I'm not that daft. My Chester B&Q said they'd deliver for £15 !!! So back home I found the cheapest one was on Amazon. Odd to buy a book, a DVD and a waterbutt on Amazon but hey ho. It came. We were out. So the postman put it behind our bins. Luckily the dustmen didn't want to take it. The butt came with a tap but the inside nut had come loose. How do I attach a nut on the inside and the tap on the outside when this requires arms 17 cm longer than I possess? Solution - my wife holds the tap in position while I put on my divers' headlight and crawl inside the butt to screw on the nut. The house phone rings and wife goes inside leaving me stuck in the butt.

Never a dull day.
