Here's a great example of an open source productivity tool. It does everything that Dropbox does and more. I also run it on the same network that Dropbox runs on so I'm essentially cutting out the middleman. The server software is free to download and install. The desktop apps are free. The mobile apps are 99¢ which is basically free.

Pros:
* Cheaper per person than Dropbox.
* More  options than Dropbox - calendars, notes, tasks, web bookmarks, contact management, integration with other cloud storage  services.
* Active developer community contributing to the project.
* Your data is completely under your control
* Much more private than other options


Cons:
* The software is free, but it costs me $200/year to host this free software for the people who are using it.
* You have to know how to setup and maintain a Linux server. 
* There is community tech support, but you're expected to know Linux administration and bash command line tools.
* You'll need to know how to manage SSL certificates.
* Security is your problem. If you don't know how to lock down a server, you'll prolly get hacked.
* Data backups are your responsibility. You'll need to write a script to handle that for you.
* Because it's open source, there will be weird bugs that require you to patch source files  on your server if you want the fix before the official release which may be weeks or months away. That'll be your call. Is the patch good? You'll have to review the code and decide.

For me, this free, open source software is a good deal because I know how to handle the things on the 'Cons' list. This open source software saves me money and only costs me a little time because I know what I'm doing.

If there's anyone else in this group with an AWS or Rackspace account, you might want to check this out.

Haymarket in Boston, Massachusetts has been the place to get deals on fresh produce since 1730. It's surrounded by skyscrapers now but refuses to give up.

Here's an easy trick for getting the meat out of lobster legs. 

Summer in Boston is made for lobster cookouts, but even here they're pricey so we get everything we can out of them. Here's how to get the meat out of those tiny legs. 

Snap the legs off of the lobster after it's cooked. Then roll a rolling pin over the leg from the tiny claw at the end to the top of the leg. You'll be surprised how much lobster meat is in the legs!

ChefTap can import all of your ZipList recipes... even the ones they just 'bookmarked'. 

I don't post too often here because I'm obviously biased, but some people here who have been left stranded by yet another free service might find this useful.

Now that everyone's ZipList recipes have been moved to a cobbled together Epicurious recipe box, ChefTap can rescue them so you can actually use them in the kitchen again. Towards the end, ZipList started bookmarking recipes from some sites instead of actually importing them which is not all that useful. ChefTap will follow those bookmarked recipes to the original page and import the entire recipe.

The complete instructions for transferring your ZipList recipes are here:

If you've been left stranded by the closure of ZIpList, we can get you up and running again. Everyone's ZipList recipes have been moved to an epicurious.com recipe box. To get your recipes into ChefTap, do the following: Get the latest version of ChefTap and open it. On the main recipe list, ...

When we launched Google+ over three years ago, we had a lot of restrictions on what name you could use on your profile. This helped create a community made up of real people, but it also excluded a number of people who wanted to be part of it without using their real names. 

Over the years, as Google+ grew and its community became established, we steadily opened up this policy, from allowing +Page owners to use any name of their choosing to letting YouTube users bring their usernames into Google+. Today, we are taking the last step: there are no more restrictions on what name you can use. 

We know you've been calling for this change for a while. We know that our names policy has been unclear, and this has led to some unnecessarily difficult experiences for some of our users. For this we apologize, and we hope that today's change is a step toward making Google+ the welcoming and inclusive place that we want it to be. Thank you for expressing your opinions so passionately, and thanks for continuing to make Google+ the thoughtful community that it is.
