  • ThomasLerch Thomas Lerch (@ThomasLerch) reported

    Hi @chudders I read your book on photoUX. I was looking for the ressource of the referred Checklist. I only found a dropbox link that results in a 404 error. Could you send me the link via PN or mail?

  • ralner Ray Alner (@ralner) reported

    @Dropbox what is this new link sharing control?? It’s terrible!! Why default to team member access only then not let you set a link expiration unless shared links are set to team members only when it specifically says “set expiry for new links shared OUTSIDE THE TEAM” ?????

  • renditta_ RENDI ϟ ADALIATTA (@renditta_) reported

    @DaiYan0205 @bbee_marion @Frezzya4 Hahahahah you know what, that secretly holding hands videos, I save it in a lot of platform. My phone, my google drive, my dropbox hahahahq just in case if one of my storage is broken, at least I have backup on another place 🤭

  • AndrewSB49 🐞🔆🆗Andrew Brennan🐞🔆🆎 (@AndrewSB49) reported

    @thepainterflynn @Google A glitch. Happened to me once or twice but got sorted. I've got Dropbox and MS One Drive as well.

  • StuartRoyce Stu Royce (@StuartRoyce) reported

    10 months ago, same customer, was unable o download something from Dropbox (nobody else was having issues), so I uploaded to a new location specifically for her. And because of the "inconvenience", gave her some books for free. No rating.

  • bhbradlow Ben Bradlow (@bhbradlow) reported

    About to make the switch from Dropbox to Drive as my main cloud backup. Any warnings, issues that I should consider? And is there any good case for iCloud instead?

  • CatnipOrRiot Sir Neko (@CatnipOrRiot) reported

    @tsai_yoko Fast : USB Key, USB SSD Slow : Online Backup (Google Drive (15GB free), Amazon Glacier, Dropbox, etc)

  • WesCrutcher Wes Crutcher (@WesCrutcher) reported

    @elonmusk MS software is ridiculous. It’s so clunky. I think it’s the perfect example of ‘top down thinking’, a technicians *********. Even after the many versions, it’s still no more intuitive. Exhibit A, One Drive V Dropbox.

  • ramboldio Lukas Rambold (@ramboldio) reported

    error message of the day: ➜ dropbox start Dropbox isn't running! Dropbox is already running! I call it "Schrödinger's @dropbox client".

  • kevinlovestech Kevin Lloyd 🇨🇦 (@kevinlovestech) reported

    Like Dropbox before it, and now Sync, both have been finicky and not working properly half the time. Trying out @pCloudapp and considering switching to it in January when my Sync renewal is due.

  • BooksFlynn Cornelius Flynn (@BooksFlynn) reported

    @david_hewson @authorpetermay I agree on the dropbox issue, so I stopped using it on iPad (sync anyway) but have zero issues using it with OneDrive set to “Always keep on this device” for my Scrivener 3 folder on Mac and PC.

  • nz_ Nick Zadrozny (@nz_) reported

    The success stories of big name startups like Stripe, GitHub, Notion, Figma, Snowflake, Dropbox are everywhere. They form a kind of mythology. I admire them like anyone else, but let's be real, they're hardly replicable when you break them down into parts.

  • mikeduncan Mike Duncan (@mikeduncan) reported

    @QueefEnchiladas I'm normally either working in a Scrivener document that continuously autosaves into Dropbox, or a google doc doing the same work. The catastrophe this week was a fluke of 1) using a different computer 2) internet connection issues. Perfect storm city.

  • earlronove S. Jean ✨ (@earlronove) reported

    Don't be me and sometime in the past delete a project off dropbox for room without backing it up first. It's either gone or cleverly named something I don't know. It's not terrible, I guess--I just wanted to look up how I did something. Rip.

  • commentoniowa Comments on Iowa (@commentoniowa) reported

    @senategop FALSELY argue voting rights bills, lk John Lewis or Manchin or original HR1 are burdens on state voting bcz it sets floor (min) 4 voting be it rural urban or suburb Little Iowa: 1M voters walk 20-80mi bcz USPS is broken to only county voter dropbox locked up after ~4pm

  • hackerschamp Tim Thompson (@hackerschamp) reported from Dublin, California

    @jrberg3 @literaryeric @EWErickson I’ve been doing mail for years and have done the Dropbox thing a time or two - I don’t see any issues with it? I guess the way I look at it is make voting as easy and accessible as possible and throw the book at those who try to commit fraud

  • badams Barry Adams 📰 (@badams) reported

    @willhamill Brave has its own issues (inserting affilliate links for example). I'd recommend Firefox for your browser, Dropbox for cloud storage, and Office 365 in lieu of Google Docs.

  • DemsKeys FloridaKeysDems DemCastFL Captain (@DemsKeys) reported

    @Tildys Those dropbox laws are also backed by heavy 25K fines to the Supervisors of Elections, even though there were no problems, it's as if they want sOEs not to put them out so they don't face possible fines.

  • ViceTempus dubstep daddo (@ViceTempus) reported

    @varisonus my favorite thing about this is i've already released it but have been trying to fix the mixdown for 3 years now. i lost the project file when my laptop got stolen, found the file buried in my dropbox, and now every kick i use creates some awful distortion when sidechain ed

  • DrOnesCummin DrOnesCummin (@DrOnesCummin) reported

    @lostnwva @JohnTitor33621 I was passing the entire dropbox file for this lawsuit in Dec 2019. Followed cyrus from day 1. Clearly its lawlessness now. World is broken

  • trainertod TBone (@trainertod) reported

    @specialreport4u Problem with many people is that they want to vote for him again but figure out comes the cheat again. Problem is we need everyone to vote, watch every polling place, watch every Dropbox, have a mandatory 10 year jail time if caught trying to cheat. But we gotta vote.

  • tyler_kvochick Tyler (@tyler_kvochick) reported

    @Dropbox the Paper app on Android is absolutely terrible

  • janus303 Michael GetYourShot Ditto (@janus303) reported

    @beebigelow I have to make alternate plans, our dropbox is closed due to a broken camera.

  • NGavenski Nathan Gavenski (@NGavenski) reported

    @drmeneguzzi @Dropbox @Nextclouders I must admit that after hearing you talk about the private server, it let thinking about doing the same since I'll need to retrieve all my data from GDrive

  • savvyliterate Megan Lavey-Heaton (@savvyliterate) reported

    @ShortFormErnie @Dropbox Yeah, a lot of my stuff is online-only. I don’t think I have any node modules unless it’s in the backup of the really old PennLive data I grabbed before our servers shut down.

  • RabbitIsTwisted Cassandra Starr (@RabbitIsTwisted) reported

    Great.. Now I'm having issues with #Dropbox.. Suddenly files aren't showing up and the desktop app quit..

  • Lord_Jim_Mason Vaccinated J Mason (@Lord_Jim_Mason) reported from Worcester, Massachusetts

    @DulceMeowed @knittymag If this isn't an urgent matter, i'd be happy to help. If you shared the content through Dropbox or such, I can put an issue together, shouldn't take long. Only thing is I may not be able to get to it for a couple of weeks (starting a new job).

  • parkerk park≡r (@parkerk) reported

    @backlon @Casey T-mobile also has cloned SIMs or its Digits app if you want to get crazy. I'm also trying to figure out a solution for shared icloud photo streams. I have unraid server that pulls all my photos and I'm going to syncs the shared albums to Google photos, Dropbox etc. Ugh.

  • AdrianJadic Adrian Jadic (@AdrianJadic) reported

    @ReadingEagle It's clearly an error however, when combined with a persistent unwillingness to add more dropboxes AND to extend dropbox hours in the weekend before election it starts looking like there is some intent there even when there's none.

  • 0xdky Dhruva Krishnamurthy (@0xdky) reported

    @rsms I have been using @EnpassApp across Mac and iOS with Dropbox storage for over 4 years. It is a one time payment software and has not let me down.
