Creative Uses for Dropbox That You Haven't Thought Of Do you think you’ve thought of all possible uses for Dropbox? You haven’t. Neither have I. Writers like me will never get sick of dreaming up new ways to use Dropbox, because this seemingly simple tool can be used to accomplish so much. It’s a program that provides a simple service – sync a particular folder on your computer with all of your other computers and a web service. Here are just a few ideas that changed the way I use Dropbox; maybe they’ll change the way you use it too. Always Have Access To Your Portable Apps Whether you’ve downloaded everything from our list of the best portable apps or have your own carefully crafted collection, Dropbox is a convenient way to access your collection from any computer you own. Even better, in many cases your settings will sync, meaning you can use your program on one computer just as you set it on another.

Bee In My Bonnet Making your own beach stone buttons Over the holiday's I gathered a few stones from my beach visits to have a go at making them into buttons. They will need to be fairly flat and not to big. There are soft rocks and hard rocks - sand and lime stone are the easiest to drill. Also take into account the size of the stone. I purchased two different types of drill bits from the local hardware store. You can go all out and purchase proper drilling bits more suitable but they will cost a lot more. The 3mm bit was designed for masonry such as bricks, tiles and concrete. The 1.5mm was a Hi Power Bit to be used for metal, wood & plastic. Mark where you would like the holes to be. Add a piece of wood under the stone to protect the surface top you are working on. Hold the stone in a Multi Grips or an adjustable plier to keep it still. Some suggest working in water but I found it awkward to hold the stone flat with the grips and drill in the water. You may wish to protect your eyes with glasses. Carefully drill your holes.

Full of enthusiasm it gushes forth, only to be met by strong obstacles. So, take a moment to reflect on the question ‘Who do I want to be in 5 years?’ Check out this short TED talk first to get inspired: Now pick one or more challenges and stick with them!
