This is interesting and a lot closer than Texas. Do you have any other
information for this company?

Yes, my birthday is the 20th of June. I have actually heard of a company in
Florida I think, that refurbishes old computers and loads Windows 7 and NVDA.
There is a small fee. You can get ither a desktop or a laptop. Honestly, I
have no desire to get a new computer right now. I love my iPhone and can do
everything easier and better on it than my computer. So, I'll keep using my
Siri and be happy.

Hi Heaver how have you been? Are you getting a new computer or just sticking
with the smart phone? It seems if memory serves me correctly you have a
birthday coming up. Maybe you should kiss up to your sister and she out of the
kindness of her heart will look into the company if it still exists in Texas
where if you make a donation they will send you a computer. Do not quote me on
this, but I want to say it comes with NVDA preinstalled. I received the email
on it back years ago and I have never personally went this route.

Can effect download speed too in some cases, but more likely to effect whoever
is downloading from you. It’s an allowance of so much data going up or down,
after that point they slow things down. As a free user you already have to
deal with bandwidth restrictions because of the limits they put on free users,
well ones who sign into their accounts and then download that is *lol*.

What exactly is bandwith? I think it has something to do with upload speed, but
not sure. If I got a plan with SS, then I could figure out what is the best.

I started out with the 19.99 a month plan that allowed me unlimited bandwidth

In the pro plan it says unlimited, I have 1.4 T in mine at this point. That
will only be increasing. They also have a link about a drop box too, but I
don’t know anything about that. I don’t think it’s anything like the dropbox
the group folder is in.

Here's a question. If I bought a plan with SS, how much space would I get?

I looked into DB back before I ever purchased a subscription for SS, but it
seemed like they were more focused on the big players such as corporations.
There prices when I looked were outrageous. I may have been looking in the
wrong area or they may have introduced new price plans I do not know, but when
I did decide to purchase a plan I went with SS because of the wizard and
because I had heard many positive things about it. I did not give much
consideration to DB because of the thought that I still had to keep a file on
the computer and that the price was too high for what I needed. If I ever grow
unhappy with SS then I may reconsider, but for now ss is doing the job that I
need it to and I do not want to transfer all the files that I currently have up
there somewhere else at this point in time.

Also with Mac you can choose to save to dropbox,Sort of like in the windows
context menu where it says send to dropbox. So I don’t think you have to
retain the file on your machine itself anymore. Of course if you throw a file
in the trash that you see in DB it is deleting that file. So in that way it
now works like SS. I did a test document and just saved it directly to DB, so
therefore it didn’t keep a copy on the computer because I did direct save. So
if I want a copy it would be like an outside file of having to copy and paste
then.



So that is a game changer as far as I’m concerned, because when DB is uploading
by itself it’s a lot faster than Sendspace. It also crosses all platforms, Mac
Windows and Linux where it’s quite accessible once found and installed, whereas
Sendspace wizard is useless in Linux, they don’t update it, and if you even do
get it compiled right, it’s not accessible with Orca.



So now part of my little brain is thinking of exploring DB as a viable storage
option verses SS. Just as SS really becomes accessible with it’s wizard, but
still, I am considering it seriously. Will have to explore their terms with a
paid DB account, I don’t think it’s much different financially.

I’m not sure you have to retain the copy on your computer anymore Josh, I
haven’t tested the theory, but I think it may actually retain on their servers
now. Thats why when a larger file goes into DB it will show almost instantly,
but in the menu extras on the mac it will show an upload progress for DB. So I
will test the theory, but I think it actually is stuff on there servers like SS
does now.

I guess what I like about SS is I do not have to keep a copy of the document on
my computer. I use Drop Box, but usually just to get documents from the iPhone
to the computer and vice versa with relative ease. I purchased a tablet a while
back to get use to the Android platform and when I purchased it I got 50GB of
free space on Dropbox so that was nice.

I prefer dropbox myself. It's fast, it's easy, and I use the NVDA add-on with
it too so it makes it a lot easier. Speaking of dropbox, I'm listening to the
zomby game. Pretty cool. I have some games I could demo too sometime. And other
software also.

It’s cheaper than a car payment *lol*. But yes your stuff will just stay up
there for 30 days if no downloading activity is happening.



It’s been a pretty good back up storage place for me especially back when we
were still using the old Mac because it only had 40 gigs storage on the hard
drive. Well it still has that, we just don’t use that machine much.

I have not gotten a chance to listen to the letter, but speaking of SS I
deactivated my account for a short period of time. If you ever decide to do
that make sure you can move your stuff within 30 days because lifetime storage
is only a benefit if you are paying them. That makes sense, but their website
was not real clear. I reactivated and just went ahead and paid for 6 months so
I do not have to worry about it for a while.

Okay here’s Stacey’s latest letter on SS in the archive.



<https://www.sendspace.com/pro/dl/sn3wkr>
https://www.sendspace.com/pro/dl/sn3wkr



I also have a letter already in the group box in DB, but am waiting for it to
go up to SS yet. SS decided it wants to upload a different folder first, and
won’t let me pause it to start the letter. So that will probably be a little
later today because I don’t plan to stay up all night while it loads this one
folder. So SS users will have to wait a little bit. Once i have a link you
all will have it too.
