Orbitfiles: 6GB of online storage waiting for you!

Orbitfiles I just came across a very handy website called Orbitfiles where you get 6GB of online storage and the best part is that you can join it now for free!

As they say in their welcome email:

…you can store and access any type of files – documents, videos, music files, presentations, photos and many others from any computer at any place on earth.

While 6GB can easily be filled with an average photo album collection, it can still go a long way. You could use Orbitfiles to share a download with someone or the entire world or even use it to keep a playlist of songs that you like to have access to at all times. 😛

If 6GB of free storage isn’t enough for you then you can even get unlimited storage for $5/month.

I’m going to give this service a good test drive, but I think 6GB will be enough for me for a little while.

Jump Drive failure..

So, I have a SanDisk Cruzer Micro 2.0GB jump drive that I got for Christmas last year and I use it almost daily. It’s the slim kind with the transparent cover and cap and it’s been great…up until a couple days ago.

The last thing that I used it for was to save a pdf ticket to a Brad Paisley concert so I could take it to a computer with a printer. Now, all it does when I plug it in to a usb slot is slowly light-up on the end as it normally would, but then it immediately fades out and doesn’t do anything at all after that.

I’m assuming it’s dead and I did a little searching around to see if I could find similar cases and possibly a solution, but I didn’t find much of anything that seemed useful. If anyone knows what is wrong or can confirm that it’s definitely dead then please let me know.

I’m looking into pricegrabber.com to find a great price on another one…except this time I’ll probably aim for something around 4-8GB. So that’s what I’ve been up to lately…and I’m ready to take out the tools and open this little soldier up if it’s definitely dead. 😀

Let me know!
