    I have an excel document that i'd like to use on both of my computers and always be up to date.

    I have a MacPro at home, and my MacBook when I am away. How would I make it where the excel file updates on one computer when info changes on the other?

    Drop box was the worst thing that ever happened to my Mac. I had to completely recover that and their techs just apologized and said it wasn't normal.

    Maybe there's no way to do what I am wanting to do. I am pretty sure mobileme will only let me transfer the file in iDisk back and forth.

    works great for me. i look for torrent files using my macbook and send them to drop box, then remote into my windows xp server and run the torrent

    the reason behind this is because i got a virus on my server going to misc torrent sites, lame
