Title: Repository of all things CSY - Dropbox
Post by: Peter Roach on May 09, 2011, 07:05:30 PM
Gang - we have been trying out a repository of all the documents for CSY that are in each one of our hands. The service is called Dropbox. It looks like a folder on your desktop that you can drop things in or retrieve documents from. The trick is the folder is on everyone's desktop at the same time.

We have loaded this with a number of documents so you can get the idea of what can be included. The service is free up to a total number of max memory. The nice thing is we get additional space for everyone that installs dropbox on their machine (you must install it and not just accept the invitation we send). I can see this being a place where we can share a limited number of pictures or some higher quality pictures associated with a post you are making.

The service is an invitation only service and if you private message me with your email address I will see that you get an invitation so you can see what we are talking about. There is a read me file in the dropbox that talks about how to use this for the CSY information. Please read it before you start using the service.

Finally, this in no way replaces the CD that has been rumored to be in production. I believe Steve has a LOT of information on the CSY so the CD will likely be a good investment.

I've just added a copy of the book: CSY Guide to Buying a Yacht" by John R. Van Ost to the Dropbox new additions folder. I have heard of another edition that includes the walkthrough model which this one does not. Hope you enjoy.

I tried private messaging, but can't hear the "security letters" (using a Mac).

I don't have an apple. Also, it has been quite some time since I signed up for DropBox. Does anyone know if there is there any way to type in the security code?

If you downloaded and installed Dropbox you should see a folder on your desktop called Dropbox. Inside that folder there is another called CSY Info. Inside of that folder are a number of other folders that have CSY stuff. You can add to these folders. If you want to take anything out please make sure you copy it and then paste it into the folder you would like. If you drag the item out you will remove it from Dropbox and put it on your computer.

Have fun

Peter

Post by: Peter Roach on September 19, 2012, 03:15:15 PM
Mike,

Dropbox syncs the folders to your desktop. If you are on an internet connect that has problems with this sync it may take some time to sync the entire folder. It sounds like Dropbox had started to sync when you saw these folders. Please try to give it a little more time and see if all of the material comes through. If you are still having problems let me know.

Peter

Matthew,

I attached low resolution copies. I have high res scans, but they are 10MB each. Way too big for the forum.

Hello Peter,
I am just new at this forum, have a CSY44 WO, called Maighstir, (ex Mabel Reid), and want to enter your dropbox account. If you would please help me to get an entry I would be very graetful.
At the moment I am busy getting a new engine installed. First there was the old Perkins with 63 hp and now I have installed an allmost new Vetus Deutz DT4.29 with 83 hp.
I would like to make a halfmodel from my boat and saw that there might be a linesplan in your Dropbox. So, please let me in.
Regards
Bert van Baar
