Comment GoodSync (Score 1) 239

If you're looking for a turnkey little utility to do the job, check out GoodSync. http://www.lifehacker.com.au/2011/07/how-to-set-up-a-file-syncing-dropbox-clone-you-control/ It is configurable with any server that has SFTP or FTPS accesss. It also works with a bunch of other cloud services, but I think this tutorial is more in line with what you want to do. The key is that it detects when new files appear in the source directory and triggers a new upload. I've since chucked Dropbox in favor of this.

Comment Double-reverse-getoffmylawn-irony (Score 2) 713

In a case of double-reverse-getoffmylawn-irony, the author is apparently too old to understand that Instagram icon is capitalizing on the very real nostalgia by hipster twenty-somethings for Polaroid cameras. This kind of retro-enthusiasm is very selective though. Recently I had a friend chastise another friend on why he would have an interest in vintage computers. Later that day, when visiting said friend's abode, I discovered an Atari 2600 configured with a SynthCart that allowed him to manipulate it as a retro-new-wave electronic instrument.
