Get Ready for Dropquest II and a Chance to Win 100GB of Dropbox Space

Dropbox’s most tempting feature is it’s referral program that gives users the opportunity to increase their storage space by several Gigabytes simply by getting their friends to sign-up and doing odd jobs like connecting their social accounts or uploading pictures from their cameras. Occasionally, Dropbox would improve their referral program, add new tasks or cooperate with other businesses to give more free space. One new opportunity is coming next week.

Dropbox just made a pre-announcement for Dropquest II – an online scavenger hunt game which will have people, within a week’s time, cranking their brains to solve several increasingly difficult puzzles in a quest to score some free Dropbox space. Last year’s Dropquest engaged half a million people, which in my book, is a huge success. Dropbox promises that this year's quest will be harder than last year's and will require “a discerning eye and tons of creativity to solve”. Last year’s Dropquest was finished in a little under 2 hours, but Dropbox’s team believes that this year’s quest will take at least 5 hours to accomplish.

But the rewards are enticing: the person who completes the quest the fastest will see their Dropbox space increased to a whopping 100GB, for life. The winner will also receive an assortment of goods including a hoodie, t-shirt and an invitation to help write the next Dropquest.

Rest of the prizes include more Dropbox space in slabs of 20GB, 5GB, 2GB and 1GB. Everyone who completes Dropquest will get at least 1 GB of extra free space, even if they participated last year.

Dropbox says that it will not tolerate use of their support, forums, or blog for Dropquest hints or answers and they will disqualify anyone caught doing this. Last year, the entire Dropquest walkthrough was leaked and anybody who cared to complete got away with an extra GB of space.

Dropquest starts Saturday, May 12, at 10AM PST (17:00 GMT) on this page.

How to Record CPU and Memory Usage Over Time in Windows?

Whenever the computer is lagging or some application is taking too long to respond, we usually fire up task manager and look under the Performance tab or under Processes to check on processor utilization or the amount of free memory available. The task manager is ideal for real-time analysis of CPU and memory utilization. It even displays a short history of CPU utilization in the form of a graph.

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo

Facebook’s current layout, the so called Timeline, features a prominent, large cover photo that some people are using in a lot of different creative ways.

However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run. So, here is how you can do that.
