The dropbox bug

Dropbox is great product, I use it on Windows, Linux, Mac Os and iPhone. But on the Windows version (version 0.7.110), there has been a bug for more than a year now. Dropbox seems to consume “something” in Windows that cannot be allocated anymore. The bug appears on Windows XP, Vista, 7 32 and 64 bits. When it appears, a lot of programs crash, they cannot show any kind of windows, menu or any windows user interface, the only way to save you from rebooting is to quit some programs to be able to launch the task manager and then kill dropbox and restart it again.

SVN : Go further

I’m not a huge fan of SVN. It’s crappy for file transfers and it easily locks. But still, it works pretty well for my relatively small needs and it’s super easy to setup. I’d like to talk a little bit about the things you might not know about SVN… Hooks on the SVN Server You might not know this but you can add a lot of personalized actions on your repository.
