    Looks like it'd be fun, but I don't own Arma 2. What I want to try is "Artemis". «link»

    Anyone try Arma 2 DayZ mod? Looks really for a very simple oriented game. It's left for dead meets grand left auto

    I remember someone in the past making a post about buying a gaming laptop. Don't remember who it was though. Was curious what kind or brand you went with? Against my better judgment I'm considering buying one. What alternatives to Alien should I consider?

Dawg Digs... Cloud Save

Posted by ABCDawg

DawgNet - Cloud Save Icon"The Cloud" is becoming an increasingly popular place these days. More and more people are placing their photos, music and other files online, accessible from wherever they need them.

What's sometimes lacking is an easy way to get files that are already on the net to your cloud location of choice. What ends up happening is a two or three step process of downloading the file you need, then reuploading it via a web interface or mobile/desktop app.

Convenience FTL!!

But, if you're a Chrome user, it doesn't have to be this way...

Cloud Save is a unique extension for the Chrome web browser that allows you to easily throw an online file into any cloud platform you choose. Directly from its original location! And there are many clouds supported, including but not limited to Picasa, Google Docs, Facebook, and Drop Box, with more platforms added regularly by a very diligent developer!

So how do you use it? It couldn't be simpler.

First off, find something you want to save to the cloud. This can be a file available online (whose link, if clicked, would cause you to download the file to your computer), an image on a webpage, doesn't matter. Cloud Save doesn't distinguish file types, it'll just try and save whatever it is you've clicked.

For our purposes, let's use this adorable picture of my niece from Facebook!

DawgNet - Adoriable Niece

I want to save this image to my DropBox, for the purpose of placing it in this article. Facebook offers the ability to download images in the bottom lefthand corner of the photo popup.

But, instead of left-clicking the "Download" link (which would save the file to my computer) we're going to right-click instead!

DawgNet - Cloud Save on Right-Click Menu

As you can see, with Cloud Save installed a new context menu appears when we right-click. The menu contains various cloud services, as mentioned earlier.

Selecting DropBox from the menu, I can now post this image directly here from DropBox using their "public link" function.

And there you have it! Cloud Save in a nutshell.


How about you?
Got a cool browser extension you think everyone should try? Tell us about it in the comments below!

If you have Chrome, and want to check out this awesome extension for yourself, visit the Cloud Save app in the Chrome Web Store.

Dawg digs Cloud Save, because there's nothing more awesome than storing all your crap on the web!



#2 ABCDawg 2011-06-26 04:55 Quote I'm really trying to move everything I can to the cloud. With LiveDrive for backing up all my important stuff (basically everything), Google Music for my tunes, Picasa, DropBox... The options are endless. And increasingly affordable! :D
#1 ageef77 2011-06-26 03:59 Quote The concept of the "cloud" fascinates me. It kind of feels like a more organized method than the one I used for the past ten years: saving stuff as attachments in web-based emails. Maybe that's more like the "fog."
