I’m slowly weaning myself off Dropbox dependencies in favour of self-hosting and going back to basics, but in the interim I learned something. As far as I can tell, Dropbox isn’t case-sensitive. You probably all knew that already, but it’s news to me.
I store work-in-progress copies of blog assets in a Dropbox folder. Everything else sits in encrypted sparsebundles, but this stuff is going to be public anyway, so I don’t bother. Here it is on my home desktop:
$ ls -1 ==> Anime ==> Hardware ==> Internet ==> Media ==> Show ==> Software ==> Thoughts
They may seem familiar to those used to my hopelessly inadequate category system! On my other laptop, I have this:
$ ls -1 ==> anime ==> hardware ==> internet ==> media ==> show ==> software ==> thoughts
I’ve resynced them a few times, but they still come up as entirely lowercase. I’m not concerned as much as I am intrigued by how this came about.
