Dropbox Space Race is on!

I mentioned the Dropbox Space Race earlier this month, but the race is still ongoing and now they have added conference affiliation for additional incentive!

If you aren't familiar with Dropbox, it is a cloud-based storage service that gives 3 GBs of space for free.  You can earn additional space for free by completing your profile and getting friends to sign-up for the service.  

Dropbox allows all file type and it allows you to share files with other users.  Accessible via web or smartphone/tablet, you can get to your files from anywhere.  Also, Dropbox offers instant photo uploads from your smartphone - a great way to backup your pictures and videos from your phone or iPod.

Via the Space Race promotion, they are offering huge amounts of space - up to 25 GBs for schools with large numbers of Dropbox users.  So far, Coker College has unlocked 3 additional GBs of space with 4 users.  We are currently ranked sixth in Conference Carolinas!  I think we can do better than that!

If you are already a Dropbox user, you can still take advantage of the additional space by adding your Coker e-mail to your account.

Good luck!

Mario, the low sodium black olives, is lonely. Will you help him out?

Hello.  My name is Mario.  I am a can of low sodium black olives.  And I am lonely.  I have been sitting at the bottom of this Harvest Hope Food Bank donation box, all by myself, all week.  Although I am low sodium, I wouldn't mind if some high(er) sodium foods came to join me in this box.  I'm not even a most needed item, as designated by the good folks at Harvest Hope: they would like to see peanut butter, soups, beans, baby formula, and other nutritionally dense foods.  I personally WOULD LOVE to chat with a jar of peanut butter.  It really is lonely down here.

The good folks at the library will be giving credit for overdue fines for each canned good you donate. Check the circulation desk for more information.

Please, don't let me be lonely.  Thank you.
