Why Didn't Anyone Tell Me about Dropbox Earlier?

I used to email myself file changes to keep certain files in sync between computers - I wished someone just told me about Dropbox earlier! Dropbox syncronizes all your files in your Dropbox folder to all your Mac, Windows and Linux computers, and it does it in a really simple way - Dropbox creates a folder which looks like a local folder (and in fact the files are stored locally as well so that you can access all your files even when you are offline), but is really synchronizing in the background. This happens so fast that most files take just a few seconds before the changes appear on all of your computers. 

The price is right too - Dropbox is FREE for 2GB, and $99.95/year for 50GB. If you sign up using my referral link, we both get 250MB more (that's win-win in my books): https://www.dropbox.com/referrals/NTg0NTA4NTA5

As a bonus tip for Mac users, Mac OS X can easily create encrypted disk images to store in Dropbox as a layer of security. You simply open the disk image, copy/modify/delete files, and it is all kept in sync.

I used your referral link to get an account. Did you get the extra 250MB?
