Of Blogging Awards, Friends and Links

Before I begin a link diary for this month, I must thank Reema for awarding me Best Blogger award. She awarded whole lot of bloggers aptly: most beautiful blog, artistic blogger, serious blogger and so on. It opened window to more bloggers. 🙂

So, if you want to go ahead and create other award for fellow bloggers: click here to create blog awards. However, this one did not have a generous blogger award that I wanted to give Reema, I would instead give her a high-five of my friendship. 🙂 See right! 🙂

Just as we use MyLiveSignature for generating personal signatures for our blog posts and emails (I use a signature for all my meme posts. :P), we can use this superstickies site to generate colourful post-its. Like one I have used here: (I have used one post-it in my last Olympics post too.)

I recently signed up for Evernote, a useful notemaking tool that can capture anything on your desktop and Web, and save it for you. It makes even the text in your saved images searchable. 🙂 It is only my laziness to login that prevents me from making good use of it. 😦 You can use a plugin in your browser for ease.

Streamload/MediaMax/LinkUp: Cheats and Offenders on Web

Fraud by Online Storage Company

I am sure, sometimes you would have wondered about backing up your files online. You thought, in case you lost files or delete files from your computer, you could stack it away safely to access it in future. If you did that, your data is in danger as mine has been lost by a online backup and storage Web site. You heard it right, I have LOST all my data due to unscrupulous online practices.

I researched well about all the available online and storage options. Here is a post from Techcrunch’s blog that says: “Streamload is the most aggresive on pricing – offering a full 25 GB free to every user.” Here is another post from Lifehacker going ga-ga about it.

Naturally, I signed up for Streamload that had by then become Mediamax. I backed up all my pdf documents online and kept deleting them from my PC and laptop to avoid the clutter. A BIG mistake in hindsight! 😦

A few days back, I try logging into Mediamax to upload more files. Mediamax had now changed to Linkup. I was surprised as I had received no information. I thought perhaps that was fine. But imagine my rude shock, when I read on home page that ONLY accounts for paid users had been moved to the new Web site! For free usage upto 2 GB (compare it with earlier free offering of 25 GB), we needed to signup again for a new account with Linkup. What about all my FILES in Mediamax? LOST!!
