@AbhimanyuSanghi If u have another desktop/computer, and u set up a folder there— any file you put in your laptop, get added there as well.

@AbhimanyuSanghi If you use these phones: http://t.co/qcxbFHos or any place with internet (using web interface) you can access those files.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to AbhimanyuSanghi

@AbhimanyuSanghi Dropbox works very differently than google docs. You can put *any* file in a folder in your laptop, and it will be uploaded

via Twitter for Mac in reply to AbhimanyuSanghi

@AbhimanyuSanghi No idea about kookoo.in. Don’t host on Dropbox, if you need hosting checkout http://t.co/zkJu7aPX or other alternatives.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to AbhimanyuSanghi

@AbhimanyuSanghi Just looked up their forum. Seems like hosting a few pages does work (in a broken way). Its not meant to do that.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to AbhimanyuSanghi

@AbhimanyuSanghi Dropbox for hosting an html page? Does it even work? Dropbox is super useful for keeping files in sync between diff devices

@rungta I think that’s a good idea.

@aadvaark Maybe because they wanted us to spread the word. :)

@rasagy For sure! Keep attending those you that interest you. Connecting with new people is always fun + there is a new learning now & then.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to rasagy

@rasagy My last tweet was not pertaining to Jaaga. Just Bangalore meetups in general.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to rasagy

@rasagy Had been to Jaaga at its older location. Anyways, after attending a few meetups, I realised that there was more noise less signal.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to rasagy

@rasagy Excellent events are few. When I grow up I’d travel to attend a few of those.
On 2nd thoughts, come over, lets do one in Delhi. :)

via Twitter for Mac in reply to rasagy

@aroradush That is because there are places where I totally ignore the veg stuff. If I did it here, I’d have missed something.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to aroradush

@rasagy I’ll ask again after you spend sufficient time in Bangalore. Although @hasgeek events bring a breath of fresh air. @rungta @ap00rv

via Twitter for Mac in reply to rasagy

@aroradush 1. Don’t act like a carnivore. 2. Sample everything.
3. Let us know if you concur with our review. :)

@rasagy Not really changed. But there are things happening on and off. Of course not as much as Bangalore. But heck, that’s fine.
