  1. Roger says:

    Is "55% off" a typo for "50% off"?

  2. K. says:

    Seconding Roger's question (and assuming it isn't). Also what's with the red asterisk after all the questions; there doesn't seem to be a footnote for it.

    Thank you for your generosity and keep up the good work!

    P.S: Turning on transcribed subtitles on your videos makes them quite surreal ;-)

  3. Jovan Washington says:

    This is not a typo. :-)

    Thanks for inquiring and for your participation!

  4. Jeff says:

    About Q3 "What is one thing that is really important when finding a cloud provider?" I think the most important thing would be that the data are stored securely. Sure we're using SpiderOak because we're also interested in privacy, but privacy doesn't make much good when the data get lost or destroyed in the first place…

  5. Jovan Washington says:

    Absolutely, Jeff. We, of course, take privacy and security very seriously. This question is simply a random question pulled from one of the videos. Thanks for expressing your thoughts!

    thank you for the chance to earn extra space.
    does this count against the "up to 10 free gigs" from referals?

  7. Jovan Washington says:

    You are very welcome, Jazz. This does not count against your referrals. Thanks for asking.

  8. Diablo says:

    regarding this question – "True/False: SpiderOak is 100% secure"
    I am not sure what do you mean by "Secure". I went over all videos and didn't find any exact reference for this, only references like "100% zero knowledge" which I don't consider the same as 100% secure.
    (in a more general note I don't believe it's possible to say that something is "100% secure")

    Thanks for making those quizzes :)

  9. Magnus says:

    When something is 99,999999 % secure, I consider it 100 %.

  10. Chronos says:

    What time is it according to SpiderOak? Less than 24 hours but it's no longer accepting submissions.

  11. Diablo says:

    Magnus, thanks for clarifying this.
    Kudos for the last question!
