In order for Dropbox to make your files available through the web interface the encryption key *must* be stored by dropbox.

It’s much better if you create a sparsebundle since then the size of the dog will only be as large as needed for the files on it. I have a 4.7GB one on dropbox, but it only has about 800MB of files on it.

and play some pool, pretend you never went to school and still you'll
never get it right cuz when you're lay'n in bed at night watching
roaches climb the wall if you called your dad he could stop it all.
