DropBox offering up to 5GB worth of space

From the official DropBox forum:

During this beta period, we are also offering additional free space to test automatic uploading of photos and videos. For every 500MB of photos and videos automatically uploaded, you’ll receive another 500MB space bonus, up to 5GB total. More information here.

Here’s some R code I used to generate some random plots that I wanted to automatically upload to my DropBox folder as a test:

for (i in 1:10000){
   filename <- paste(i,'.jpg',sep="")
   #roughly 149 kb per file
   jpeg(file=filename,width=2000,height=2000,type="cairo")
   plot(rnorm(1000))
   dev.off()
}

To use the automatic upload function save the images onto a pen/thumb drive and the DropBox automatic upload function should be available when you plug your pen/thumb drive into your computer or on Windows right click on your drive and click autoplay.
