Control your cloud

I've been a Dropbox user for some time now, though not an early adopter, and not a power user - Dropbox has met my limited needs satisfactorily for its mobile apps integration, facilitating inter-device sync efficiently.  In terms of volume storage, such as for RAW photo archive, Dropbox can quickly become a costly proposition.

ownCloud is an open project aimed at those with the desire to assert direct control over their cloud storage needs and/or to enjoy the economies of self-hosting.

2013 Fusion rental and test drive

On a recent excursion to the San Diego area, I had occasion to spend so time behind the wheel of a 2013 Ford Fusion SE.  Rented through National's Emerald program, the car had only ~1300 miles on it, and was in pristine condition.  This is a car that I have been interested in from both an aesthetics point of view, as well as feature/function, quality, and driveability.
