I’ve expressed my disdain for a number of things, primarily Hy-tek’s poor SDIF support in this forum so I guess it is appropriate that I also note some things I find useful and work well. DropBox is one of them. It solves a problem and solves it very well.
A lot of swim team files are shared among a group of people and e-mailing them around can be problematic. We’re using DropBox to share some of the files and I am planning to store our WinSwim database in DropBox so the Swim Team’s computer and my computer will have access to the same database file. I am optimistic that doing this will allow us to collaborate on the meet line up and heat sheet process without having to mail files around. I’ll report back later on how it works out.
In the mean time, if you want to check out DropBox (free for 2GB of storage), use this DropBox referal link and I will get some extra space as will you when you sign up!
