dropbox - sorry, but is this appropiate for the list? [EOM]

Hello Justin

Thank you for the explanation.  The JavaScript files I write are stored
on a SVN server on the Internet (Google code as it happens).  This
provides all the access I need for committed files.

For development I've found it really useful to run Apache on my Linux
machine (where I code) and to symlink from the http docs to the SVN
sandbox where I program.

This allows me to test my work on my Windows laptop before committing.

The above setup gives me all the remote access I need for my JavaScript
development, and so for that purpose I won't be needing dropbox.  I'm
sure it does have other uses.

Best regards
