Shared Files on Dropbox

May 30, 2019

Dropbox used to have a way to show all the folders and files that are shared. That feature seems to have disappeared. Mystery why they did that. To me, that seems to be basic security functionality. Probably removed from the commercial version and only in the “business” product since business would normally have IT security people who would insist in such a thing. Why “regular” users, who also have security knowledge and experience would not want/demand that is a mystery.

In any event, after a small amount of internet searching, on https://www.dropboxforum.com/t5/Dropbox/Ability-to-Locate-Shared-Folder/idc-p/283887/highlight/true#M50401 I found this gem for use on Mac OSX and Linux/Unix:

Grep dropbox shared

grep -r -i –include=”*.dropbox” shared .

I’d show an example of the output, but then I’d be exposing file names which I’d prefer not to!

Wow. Look at This

Over at Chiefio, https://chiefio.wordpress.com/2019/05/11/ghcn-v3-3-vs-v4-asia-anomaly/#comment-112097 he/she has done a terrific analysis of global temperatures, with focus on “anomalies”.  Must see.

Conclusions:

Looking at those graphs, I just can’t see any way to justify the claim that it is caused by CO2. CO2 is a slow gradual effect over decades (per the claims) and with stong DECAY of effect with concentration. It doesn’t “do nothing” until 2000 then give a 1 C to 2 C step change. It doesn’t “trim off the cold years” and only narrow the range of variability while not raising the warmer years in one country, while doing something quite different in the country right next door.

I’d like to think I gave him/her some pointers to move into Python, a database, etc. He/she didn’t (yet?) get into using Pandas for data analysis, but someday maybe.
