Diary of an Ass Monkey


I really need to thank traballenguas for solving one of my problems. Neither Google Docs nor Zoho were quite doing the trick for me as a way to work on my novel from multiple computers. They were ok, but now I've got something much better.

His solution is called Dropbox and it's basically a magic folder that exists simultaneously on any computer where you install it. So if I make changes on a word document here at home, the copy on my work computer gets updated too. It's great. It does chew up a little of you internet connection (anywhere from 5-50 MBs), but for me it's definitely worth it.
