Jim planned to do some breakfast and asked me what I would like. I hadn’t had a boiled egg in ages, so I was asking him for a soft-boiled egg for me. As he – as a good cook as he is – doesn’t know how to cook these, the day started with Loriot, a German lesson and some facts about marriage which a freshly engaged couple would swear it will never happen to us…

Ages ago I registered with Dropbox which is pretty cool for sharing and storing files online, I love the seamless file system integration, and if you consider storing confidential data there you might want to encrypt your stuff with truecrypt, if you need instructions see here for details. However, my available dropbox space is less than 5GB as I am on the free plan only, a few recommendations, the dropbox quests and some ohter tasks helped me to get there. To get 20GB or more I would need to go for a commercial plan, which I don’t want to do for now. 

To be able to back up and share documents and pictures online I was looking for a more space, and came across Wuala. It’s the same idea of cloud storage, just the way how to manage and sync the data is different, basically a fat client is required. So I miss the file system integration, and I don’t like that the client crashes/freezes when I am offline but within a very short period I earned already 20GB of space (thanks to a few referrals and Caschy’s list of Promo Codes [german]). So I am giving it a try as it works for what I want right now. Especiall as Wuala for Android got just released.

An overview over current sync services and their features you find in wikipedia, if you look for a summary click here [german].

If you google for a solution you will most likely end up with lots of recommendations how to add some code into your wordpress installation. I do not favor this solution as each update would require code modification again, and most likely I would forget. Having Feedburner for the blog feed anyway, I choosed an easier way. At Feedburner I edited my blog feed URL and added ?&cat=-10 at the end. So instead of containing all posts, the weekly feed aggregation is now excluded. 

The current feed will contain only hand-written articles, if you want to subscribe the full feed just use this URL instead http://feeds.feedburner.com/frau-klein/EOUV.

As WordPress 3.1 supports excluding categories from the feed I wonder if anyone of you would be interested to have the weekly aggregation of feeds about shared / happened / twittered / foursquared items excluded from the feed. Just ping on twitter / via mail or comment if you want to keep or exclude this.

Cheers!
