I found this tip from LifeHacker useful.
My web host gives me unlimited storage, and all the other drag and drop file sharing services have some limitations (size of file uploaded, total space available, etc), so this gives me a great way to get value from my hosting provider with very little effort.
But then I figured I’d add my own URL shortener. To do that, I ended up installing dropzone, then modifying one of their many user contributed extensions to upload and then shorten the url using my own yourls URL shortener. So, now I can drop a file on it, it will upload it to my server and then copy the short URL into the clipboard so I can paste it into an email or whatever. Fun.
It’s always satisfying to get these sorts of hacks up and running. Right!, back to writing C. S. Lewis book reviews…
