Resolutions (Part 2)! (and t-shirt winners too!)

Posted by Jon Ying on January 25, 2010

Okay, okay. So I know that 2010 is already 1/12th over, but that doesn’t mean it’s too late to make our traditional Resolutions post. I should mention that lots of new stuff happened in 2009 including (but def. not limited to) a new web redesign, two client releases, an iPhone app, and several million users too!

On that note, here are the team’s resolutions for 2010:

I will seek rehab for my Starbucks addiction.

I resolve to get my life together. Again.

Play in a band (Didn’t I say that in 2009?)

I resolve to finally make the Dropbox store a reality.

I resolve to become Justin Kan.

My New Year’s res is to harness as much dark energy as I can in my quest to become the most powerful being in the galaxy.

I resolve to collect all 14 Chaos Emeralds and make selective sync the new hotness on all your Dropboxes.

I resolve to eat at Tartine, Ike’s, San Tung, Wonderful Foods, Shalimar and Farolito… all in one day. That, and come up with more ways to reward our users for being awesome.

I resolve to not let Drew force me into Starcraft games at the office, and to revamp the photo galleries into a work of art.

I will expand Dropbox’s east coast operations to never before seen levels.

I resolve to release some crazy new features for the iPhone app, and to begin poking my head around some other undisclosed projects.. coughANDROIDAPPcough

Eat more bacon,
start going to the gym,
find better ways to test my code.

My 2010 resolution is to learn to sail :)

Exercise more,
eat less meat,
get to work earlier.

I resolve to learn to sing all 3 parts for harmony in Beatles Rock Band. Something about xattr support too :)

I resolve to code. That is all.

I resolve all dissonant chords to consonance.

So, what are all your resolutions?

Also, I’m pleased to announce the winners of our limited edition Psychobox t-shirts:

Vidar L.
Stephanie T.
David D.
Michael B.
Neil K.
Davin S.
Frederic T.
George B.
Tami A.

Congrats to these (edit: 10) lucky folks and thanks to everyone for entering! If you missed out this time, don’t worry. We’ll be having plenty more giveaways in the future. Furthermore, I’ll try and get some shirts and stickers out for sale in the next few months– it’s my resolution anyway :)

Happy 2010!

Thanks so much Will

10 T-shirts to give away, but only 5 winners?

January 26, 2010

Yes, yes. That's all very nice. But what about the Dropbox API?!

January 26, 2010

I love drop box !

January 26, 2010

This sucks. I thought there are 10 winners.

Up for grabs are 10 limited edition Dropbox t-shirts featuring our famous 404 logo, nicknamed ‘Psychobox’. These shirts are so new and limited that they don’t even exist yet! Well… they will in a few days, but you get the point.

January 26, 2010

I'm with Lier, I thought there were 10 shirts for the taking, not five… and what were the winning entries? Would be interesting to see the content in addition to the names, unless this was all just some kind of random drawing… I love your service and put some TIME into my Tweet, man:

jimmaiella: .@Dropbox This would be just the thing to make sure people could find and work off the latest version of me. #dropboxshirt

January 26, 2010

oh man. i'm pretty stupid. yep, you're totally right and i left out 5 more winners. they've been drawn and i've updated the post to reflect that.

January 27, 2010

Going to share mine even if it's over.
To love passionately, to find peace within and without, to fly, to jump, to soar, to write the fantasy, to live the sci-fi, and to hold those I know are friends in that passionate love. :)

Passing my grats to Tany, you know who you are.

In connection with Mike H. mentioning Selective Sync, where are you all at with this? A lot of us are looking for a status/eta on this. Some info would be muchos appreciated. Thanks much

[...] in the latest post published on Dropbox’ company blog, engineer Will Stockwell notes his resolution for 2010 is [...]

Can dropbox possibly solve a crime?! I had a computer stolen a couple of days ago and yesterday files in my dropbox was deleted. Are you able to trace the ip address? This might help in recovering my computer!

Please get in touch

Rian, sorry to tell you but there is no “dark” energy in the world. But, if you want to become powerful there is a way…

Probably sound very simple, thats the key, its a simple secret and it is it:

Come to the conclusion that every little thing in your life, (really everything) is just perfect.

Just try it (it took me 7 months) and let us know the result or keep it a secret.
