    Ok, this service is pretty slick.

    https://www.dropbox.com/referrals/NTc0NDcwNjg5

    2gb of free online backup, which isn't anything unusual. But you can also access the files through any browser, it syncs across multiple PCs, AND you can access the files on multiple mobile platforms.

    Is this service secure, papachop? I suppose at least as secure as the internet in general.

    SSL, AES-256, and files are only accessible to people you invite. I wouldn't put things like financial information and the like on there, but I'm kinda paranoid. For average documents it shouldn't be bad.

    I don't even have my full name anywhere on the internet even the white pages feature. I have an unlisted phone & I'll bet you do, too.

    The name "Glenn" could be my frst, middle or last name or none of the above. Could even be a nickname as far as anyone knows. My friends & relatives do.

    Too much OPSEC/PERSEC in my lifetime. Or is it paranoia??

    Actually bradyc87, it's a good OPSEC practice. Using his rank lets everybody know about his background, and who knows where he got Glenn from - could be a friend's name, middle name or dog's name. It's just a handle for the forums. One thing you don't do on public forums is reveal your real identity.

    You'd be correct, Top. Background in law enforcement is good training for OPSEC\PERSEC too.

    It's been my theme for most of my adult life, Doc. There's always someone out to get ya! The gummint is not the only entity that tries.
