Dropbox offers 2GB free file storage to store your work online. It means that you can work from several places (as I do) including your phone, because it updates your work from whichever machine you’ve connected in and then when you use a different one its got the recent version stored in Dropbox.
You set it up by creating an account, then installing Dropbox on each computer you normally work from.
You keep your work in the Dropbox folder that appears on your desktop, and the program will automatically synchronise your files so they are the same on all the computers you use.
You can also login to Dropbox and get your files from any computer (eg internet cafes) and you can share files with other people this way too. Handy for large files that don’t email easily.
We are all invited to chalk this logo wherever we like.
Xylo’s website says:
“The world is currently undergoing a mass extinction event, and this symbol is intended to help raise awareness of the urgent need for change in order to address this crisis.
Estimates are that somewhere between 30,000 and 140,000 species are becoming extinct every year in what scientists have named the Holocene, or Sixth Mass Extinction.
This ongoing process of destruction is being caused by the impact of human activity.
Within the next few decades approximately 50% of all species that now exist will have become extinct. Such a catastrophic loss of biodiversity is highly likely to cause widespread ecosystem collapse and consequently render the planet uninhabitable for humans.
In order to spread the message as widely as possible, please consider drawing this symbol with chalk in any location you feel able to. Thank you.”
