If you don’t already use Dropbox, you should.
Besides keeping your files backed up and computers in sync, it also allows you to share files with others. You’ll never cringe at attaching huge files to emails ever again. However the links to these shared files can look kind of cryptic and unprofessional. If you’re sharing files with clients,
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/918273645/file.zip just doesn’t cut it.
I decided to remap these urls to something a little more legible, professional, and just incase a link to a public file starts getting shared like crazy: an intersticial.
I added a subdomain to my website,
http://box.leebyron.com to use as the base URL for these links.
http://box.leebyron.com/file.zip is the goal.
