I am using Scientific Linux on my office computer and home laptop. I was usually signed in before I leave my office so when I made a change over SSH on my office computer, DropBox would automatically sync the change.

My current environment for $corp_overlords$ is set up in a hub-and-spoke model with a technologically well-endowed home office hub (SAN, bladecenter/bladesystem ESXi cluster, fiber internet connection, etc.) connected to a number of remote site spokes that are not so well off, and typically contain single ESXi host server and connect to the home office hub via
