Upgraded from the S1 Mini to an S4.

Holy cow what I've been missing on.

Has anybody from here heard about BitTorrent Sync? If you use it, how well does it perform?
If not, what is your favorite file-syncing app(not necessarily cloud)?

I use Dropbox but I'm looking for alternatives.

I changed my Gigabyte HD4850 with an MSI HD7750. Now I can run Crysis FullHD.

I started a thread about Nootropics some time ago, but seems like nobody was interested.

Well, I took Rhodiola in the spring exam session, and it kinda helped me. I can honestly say I resisted with less sleep than usual, although the pills I took had small concentration in it. But in time I found out that Rhodiola on its own isn't really a nootropic, but has a synergistic effect with other mind-enhancing supplements.

Now I switched to something else, after reading through some sites and consulting the reddit wiki of /r/nootropics. Seems like this is the "safest"( as in no side-effects) nootropic available, and some drink it everyday(green tea). It's Theanine. The ones I bought are 30 pills/100mg for 15$, imported from USA.

The way I took them is ingest a pill, wait 20 minutes then drink a cup of moka pot coffee( lighter than espresso, more concentrated than drip coffee). At about half-an-hour after ingesting the pill I begin to feel a bit spaced-out, but soon I become more aware of the surroundings. I don't feel like on NZT, you know, just that I can concentrate better. It really helps me getting me into "the zone".

Now of course, the way you think, the way you are organized, this leaves a mark on how efficiently one can study.

In autumn I will try something else.

Do any of you guys consume brain super foods? For example, I like eating walnuts, fish, and dark chocolate in periods of hard study. Also drinking lots of water helps, and some good physical exercise.

What is a good file hosting site these days?

I used to upload files for the map vault on filefront(now gamefront), but they delete them after a while.
Also, linking from my dropbox account or something like that doesn't feel very secure either.
... so?

Also, when is TWHL going to increase the 2mb limit and allow for more than one screenshot? :\
