I had a lot of fun answering some interview questions for Kat at Reader, I Created Him. Stop by and visit and you’ll not only find out which book I’m totally jealous I didn’t write, but see what else I’m up to and maybe win a print copy of Exclusively Yours!
I’ve been doing a little prep work for Christmas day. No, not putting up my tree or decking the halls (though I need to get on that pretty quick). I’ve been dragging and dropping files from the PC desktop into Dropbox. Whether we’ve been good enough to find a shiny new iMac under the tree will be a last minute decision for Santa but, just in case, I’ve been throwing anything I want to save into the cloud. That way, if there’s an Apple under my tree, I don’t have to mess around. I can yank that PC and be done with it.
I’ve been using Dropbox for a while. My work is there not only as backup, but because I can easily pick it up on another computer or any of my mobile gadgets. My Calibre library is stored there, both for backup and for easily picking up books on my phone. My printer isn’t wifi, so to print from my Macbook, I just drop the document in Dropbox, pick it up on the desktop and print. This is the first time I’m using it to move files from one computer to another, but it definitely makes the process faster and less stressful. (It’s files/documents only, so no programs, but if I get a new iMac, there aren’t any programs from the 7 yr old PC I want to take with me.)
Now all I have to do is cross my fingers Santa loves me this year. Oh, and put up my tree. And decorate it. And shop. And wrap. And…*thump*
