This year I decided not to spent Xmas in cold, snowy and cloudy Germany, but to head to a tropic destination.
So I picked Ellaidhoo in the Ari Atoll as the house reef there was described to be a good spot for large fish and there a was a properly kept diving base. Hearing of my plans my kindergarten fella and dive buddy joined the trip, so I had a perfect wing man.
A friend of mine offered me the great opportunity to join him, his brother and some more friends for a three week off road trip into the western peripheral area of the Sahara in southern Tunesia.
There was no real need to ponder hard about it…
So Team Viltovergang was revived for another thrilling trip!

Dropbox is a neat service offering free online storage including a file syncing and sharing client. By registering you’ll receive 2,25 GB, but you can expand that up to 16 GB.
You gain more web space by baiting new people to register to dropbox by sharing your referral link, which is a clever mechanism as they make their users advertise dropbox for free. So after registering you’ll start annoying your friends and family to register at dropbox.com to grab the bounty of additional 250MB per active user. Students with a valid school email address get a whopping 500MB for each person they invite to Dropbox.
Unfortunately this is a hard and slow method to boost your storage, to accelerate the process, you’ll have to throw (a little bit of) money at the problem.
Simply start a google adwords campaign promoting your own referral link. Usually this shouldn’t cost you more than 25-30 Bucks, which is a good deal I think…
If you are in need a huge amount of space, you’ll have to consider the premium services of dropbox, which start at 9,99 per month, full price list here.
Android users may snatch another free 500MB easily by installing the beta client for Android devices and using the photo uploader!
But be quick as it only works for the beta version, nobody knows how long it will work out!
As usual Google first ignored my begging for an invite on the official page, but Florian Rohrweck (http://www.stilbruch.at) somehow had pity with me and sacrificed one of his invites for me. Thanks a lot, Florian!
After one minute on google+ I knew this would be a long night and way too little sleep.
The startpage reminded me a little bit of another social network, just less blue…
