FREE cloud storage

FREE Cloud Storage for Linux

There is lots of FREE cloud storage available.

I write this mainly for Linux users however most cloud storage services are cross platform so they do work for Windows as well.

The “CLOUD” is pretty cool. You can store files there and access them from any computer regardless of where you are. As long as you have internet access you will have access to those files.

The “CLOUD” is big business. Of course companies sell storage. But for me and for most businesses you need access to only a few files. There is really no need to pay for storage.

Not everyone pays for cloud storage. There are several options available for free storage. Some even offer 50GB free. Most cloud storage services will also have a mobile app.

With a little bit of ingenuity you can probably have all the storage you need for free. So, how do you find it? I have compiled a list of cloud storage services here. Feel free to check out any or all of them and decide if they can work for you. As some of you know, we publish a monthly Worldwide Satellite/Transponder list. We use BOX and MEGA for our cloud storage needs.

FREE storage is great, but remember you are putting your stuff on the cloud. In todays hackable world you might consider the security issues we read about every day.

I stopped using cloud storage for sensitive files a long time ago because of the security risks. I now use Syncthing. “Syncthing replaces proprietary sync and cloud services with something open, trustworthy and decentralized. Your data is your data alone and you deserve to choose where it is stored, if it is shared with some third party and how it’s transmitted over the Internet.”

Syncthing is easy to set up and works great. I used a old laptop with Linux OS and Syncthing. Now I have my files on any computer I use where ever I happen to be. Storage size is only limited by the hard drive size. Best of all, it’s all FREE!

ClipIt lightweight GTK+ clipboard manager

Need to copy and paste different things several times?

Clipit is the answer!

Have you ever used copy (Ctl+C) and paste (Ctl+V) for several different pieces of information that you want to re-use in different places?

If you are a Ubuntu type Linux user Clipit makes it easy.

Clipit clipboard manager

Clipit simply keeps track of what you copied and provides a list that allows you to click on any item making it ready for you to paste it where you want it.

I really like this little clipboard manager and use it on a daily basis. It also has several settings that allow you to make it work the way you want it to work.

Note: ClipIt is a lightweight GTK+ clipboard manager. Clipit is for Linux users.

You can compile and install Clipit yourself (instructions) or use their PPA.
Installation is easy with this handy PPA for Ubuntu type systems:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:afelinczak/ppa

Ransomware: Been hacked? Don't pay, learn how to unlock your files.

 Have you been hacked? Are your files locked?

Don’t pay the ransom, report the crime to the proper authorities.

 “If the ransom is paid, it proves to the cyber criminals that ransomware is effective. As a result, cyber criminals will continue their activity and look for new ways to exploit systems that result in more infections and more money on their accounts,” says the No More Ransom advice.

Check out Unhacked: 121 tools against ransomware on a single website

The No More Ransom portal now offers 121 free ransomware decryption tools which can decrypt 151 ransomware families.

Available in 37 languages, ransomware victims around the world have used the portal to help against ransomware attacks. The website’s ‘Crypto Sheriff‘ allows users to upload encrypted files to help identify which form of ransomware they’ve fallen victim to, then directs them to a free decryption tool if one is available.

Be smart, don’t pay criminals.

$25 a month for unlimited data on Verizon Wireless

A few months ago I changed mobile phone services. I'm still on Verizon which I think is considered the best provider. Most people don't know that Verizon owns another company which it uses to compete with the low cost providers.

I switched and could not be happier. It's the same service but with unlimited data and hotspot.
