Doppler rename and something about shoeboxes
Oct 14 2005 · Uncategorized
On another note, one of the original uses of Doppler was going to be for automated file backups. That is, whenever a file was updated, the file would be automatically copied and updated on another drive, folder (hmm, backup to a folder on the same drive seems dumb), whatever. Anyway, I was thinking of making an application to perform this function. Of course, again I’m faced with the daunting task of coming up with a name. I saw a christmas card I got on the floor the other day (the floor is, of course, the ideal storage location for christmas cards) and on the back was “shoebox” (which I now know is a “tiny little division of Hallmark”). I thought to myself that that would be a really cool name. I googled it and found there’s a photo organization app for OS X called shoebox. Bummer, but maybe I an append or prepend something to the name.
