"Portable" TextWrangler with Dropbox
Authored by: Reaperducer on May 17, '12 12:02:45PM

There are situations and companies where you can't just copy the application to every computer you use. One place I worked had several hundreds computers, and depending on what you were doing from one day to the next, you never knew which machine you'd be on.

Fortunately, the computers' USB ports weren't locked down, so you could carry a flash drive on your keychain. The problem is that so many Mac applications unnecessarily make use of ~Library files, so we were limited with what we could have on the stick.

Even though I once found someone's USB stick that had fallen off their keychain, I'd still feel better having the files with me than on a cloud service. Even 99.9% uptime on an internet connection leaves a lot of minutes of darkness.
