Get a Dropbox!

The best little background Windows app to come along since Launchy is something called Dropbox. It’s also available to Mac and Linux users.  This app runs in the background, and basically attaches itself to a folder on my machine, aptly named “My Dropbox”.  Whenever I put a file into my Dropbox, it quickly appears in the Dropboxes on the other computers.  If I’m not using one of my own computers, I can still access any of the files in the Dropbox through the website.  The Dropbox also has a “Public” folder.  Files in your Public folder have a URL which you can give out to people for downloading. This comes in handy if you don’t want to send out a large attachment to a group of people. You can also create directories in the Dropbox that you can share with a specific group, for example, to collaborate on a document.  It also has version control!  Thanks to Swash for finding this little gem.  Give it a try:
