LIMITED TIME ONLY – Rack Up Free Gigabytes Of Online Storage Space

January 15, 2014

There are numerous online file storage options out there and the competition is fierce. I recently came across another NEW player in the field (called COPY), that offers (for FREE) an enticing 15 GB (or more) of online storage space to new accounts.

It doesn’t stop there… To celebrate the launch of COPY, they are offering 5 GB of additional space for every person that is referred to their service. The person who takes advantage of the referral also gets a 5 GB bonus on top of the 15 GB (for a total of 20 GB). From what I am reading, there is no limit to the number of referrals and you must install one of their apps (desktop or mobile) to take advantage of this opportunity in order to be credited for the 5 GB bonus.

To help me test this out; and, to help me add to my 15 GB amount, please click the link below to sign-up for your own 15 GB COPY account and install one of their apps (desktop or mobile). You should also receive the additional 5 GB bonus for signing up through this link. I have no idea how long this offer will last…

[ CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP FOR YOUR FREE ACCOUNT TODAY ]

ADDENDUM TO THIS POST (1/17/2014) – As of date of this addendum, I was up to 60 Gb of space in my COPY Account (from the original FREE 15 GB); so, we can confirm the referrals are working.  Thank you very much!  Keep ‘em coming…  Rick

Split A PDF File Into One Or More Pieces

@ PDFSplit

I ran into a situation where I had a PDF document (actually a book), where I only needed certain page ranges. I went on the hunt and found an online (cloud) based application called PDFSplit. With PDFSplit you select a PDF file from your computer, your Google Drive account or your DropBox account. You can extract specific page ranges or you can break each page down into separate files. I found PDF Splitter to work wonderfully. Once the split has occurred you simply download your file.

Cryptolocker: How to avoid getting infected
and what to do if you are

@ ComputerWorld

I know I posted information yesterday about Cryptolocker, but this is extremely important. If you become victim of Cryptolocker, you are at high odds of losing your personal files. I have never seen anything like this and I feel, the more I let people know, the better. If you see the below graphic show up on your PC displaying that your personal files are encrypted, you have been nailed!

Cryptolocker comes in the door through social engineering. Usually the virus payload hides in an attachment to a phishing message, one purporting to be from a business copier like Xerox that is delivering a PDF of a scanned image, from a major delivery service like UPS orFedEx offering tracking information or from a bank letter confirming a wire or money transfer… READ MORE
