The problem is that your files don’t always go with you. Sure, it’s great to be able to work on that file from your laptop – if you remember to transfer it from your work computer. Flash drives work well, and even emailing the file, but again you have to rely on your own memory. For many of us, that’s the weak link in the chain!
Dropbox has welded that weak link for you. Dropbox acts almost like a virtual drive, allowing you to backup, store, and sync your files with an online file server. Simply move your file to a special folder on your computer and it will automatically save to your private and secure online Dropbox. Then, no matter what you use to edit that file, it will automatically backup to your Dropbox as well so that you are always working with the same file. No remembering to backup to a flash drive, no emailing a file – it’s all done automatically for you!
Dropbox takes this one step further by allowing you to share files with those people you designate. Share Microsoft Word docs, photos, Dreamweaver files – whatever type of file you want. You also have full control so you can “unshare” as well.
Best of all, it has a free 2GB Dropbox option, perfect for light use. Paid versions allow you to store and share up to 100GB of content. Backup your files remotely, sync with your own mobile devices, and share with others.

“Do you think ASP is old and not up to date? Hold on...”
That directly from ajaxed, a company that gives you a basic framework for adding AJAX to your Classic ASP pages. By downloading the free ajaxed program and installing on your website, you can create some of your own nifty effects like calling a server-side procedure or using page parts.
Just more proof that there really are people out there still supporting Classic ASP.

From the “oldie but a goodie file” – here’s a Top Ten list of Classic ASP tips. As the article mentions, these tips may not be “top ten” anymore. However we think you’ll find at least a couple of gems here.
