You should only use this code if you currently have less than 4GB, or are a new user. Using it on accounts larger than 4GB may actually drop your storage space.
So, with the disclaimer out of the way, log in to your SpiderOak.com account via the website then go to ‘Account’ (top right) then click the ‘Buy More Space’ button. Now enter this code:
You’ll now have two options. Up your storage to 4GB, or buy a storage package for 25% off.
PLEASE NOTE: the 4GB option of the code will expire on the 28th June. Using the code after that date will still get you 25% off.
Enjoy your extra space, and thanks to Jovan at SpiderOak for the kind offer.
It’s a warm and lazy Sunday afternoon here at FCM Towers*, so I thought I’d put up a post showing some of the data from our visitors map (aka: The FCM Map of Awesomeness) and Google Analytics. I mean what proper geek doesn’t like numbers and graphs?
* We don’t actually have a tower, but it makes us seem bigger.
First, the world:
Approximately 46k visitors in 40 days. That’s not bad! Google Analytics tells me that the average pages per visit is 3, and the average stay is 3mins. You folks don’t have much in the way of an attention span, do you? Roughly 55% are new visitors, and about 45% are bounces.

I’m trying out a new idea which I hope will make it easier for readers to suggest articles and for writers to get ideas.
I’ve created a Full Circle project, and a Full Circle team, on LaunchPad. The idea being that non-writers can go to the project page, click ‘Answers‘ at the top of the page, and leave your article ideas, but please be specific with your idea! Don’t just put ‘server article’, please specify what the server should do!
Readers who fancy writing an article, but aren’t sure what to write about, can register on the Full Circle team page then assign article ideas to themselves and get writing! I would ask that if you can’t get the article written within several weeks (a month at most) that you reopen the question to let someone else grab the idea.
I hope that this will let you good folks participate more! :)
