testing Shared DropBox Folder

This is a shared folder on my dropbox account of which anyone who wishes to install dropbox on there computer and share this folder would be able to see any pictures that other members have shared on their computer.

Installing Dropbox on your computer creates a special folder that is on your computer and it is as simple as dragging a picture to the folder on your computer ( without having to log in ) to Dropbox or NDERF.me and the picture would be updated to any other members folder on their computer .

once you get onto it it works very well and is very easy to use .

Anybody interested in trying it out I will answer any questions about it here in this topic .

Below are 2 examples of how you can show (all pictures ) in the account to the forum

the link to the DropBox site is as follows:
DropBox Site
Of all the sharing site and programs I like this one the best for ease of use and no forced advertising

Hello Garry

Would 'Sky Drive', now called 'One Drive' also work?


I can try it and see:


If it works, these pictures were taken in London yesterday - most of them from inside a bus, so the reflections on the windows show in some.

yes it works the same way except that is your personal account and I am seeing if there is any interest in setting up a SHARED nderf Dropbox account as it is much easier to use than SKYdrive

you just drag the file to a folder on your computer and it shows up on everybodys computer who is sharing the Dropbox account

you will see once its installed and set up to share

Hi Garry,

I made up an account with dropbox, and uploaded some paintings as a test. I don't know if I got your idea right. Anyhow it is listed under my name and e-mail address.

Hey cathy and marguy

You have both been sent an invite to join the nderf sharing folder of which I see that marguy ( i think ) has added 2 pictures

once cathy joins that shared folder then you guys can share your pictures and photos back and forth as often as you wish .

remeber we only have so much room on the shared drive so at some point we will have to delete some files so there is room for more

Have fun girls

It says that the Security Certificate is not yet valid. Is this something very new?

Garry, Why do we need ICQ - we have email and this place. You said that you can chat in real time, but even in the same time zone people are not always available to chat in real time.
Is ICQ superior to, for example, Google Hangout?

Hi Garry and Cathy,

Actually I must admit that I never chatted somewhere. Is this like talking via skype?
Sorry, you probably think I must be really stupid. But the dropbox thing is great.
