Dropbox Space Increase

Got this very nice message from Dropbox this morning. My storage has been increased to 22.2Gb!

To date you could earn up to a total of 10.25Gb of storage using the Dropbox referral program. This was by increments of 250Mb per person that successfully joins, after your referral. Over December of 2011 they rewarded some "power users" with an additional 3Gb for a year. As I use the product on Windows, Android, Linux and MAC (MAC was just a test...), they decided I was a power user and could the additional 3Gb.

Today, it seems everyone with a full referral record, got bumped to 22.2Gb. I found the hint to this on the referral page:

From this page I'm going to assume you can now earn up to 22.25Gb on the Dropbox referral program, giving you a total of 22.25Gb of cloud storage usable on multiple platforms. Lets face it, right now nothing gets close to Dropbox.

But wait, what will Google drop on us hopefully this month? Is this Dropbox showing concern for what is coming?

Regardless, thank you Dropbox! I love your service!


  1. Too bad all my geek friends already have Dropbox. There isn't anybody left to invite!

Double Bunk in Caravan

With our family expanding, we faced a challenge of adding another berth in our caravan, but I did not want to make it permanent.
A couple of options are available, of which one is simply to add a bunk to the single berth. We however did not want to cause any permanent markings on the interior of the caravan .

Netdata + SNMP + Mikrotik

Always wanted to see my Internet line usage as a gauge without having to log into the router.
So today I configured SNMP in Netdata to collect from my Mikrotik router.

CasparCG Simple Playlist

It is possible to build a simple playlist as a rundown in the CasparCG client. It will very simply play each item after each other that are on the same layer. In this very simple post I show how to build such a playlist including the very important step of activating the OSC.

The Open Sound Control (OSC) implementation is how the client knows what the server is doing and then being able to send new command back to the server when a piece of media has ended to trigger playback of the next piece. For more details on the OCS, please see
