Tomboy and Dropbox, the Dynamic Duo

Filed under
Linux

I just saw an article headline about Tomboy and it's strengths. It made me think about all the reasons I use Tomboy and perhaps my favorite reason for using it.

I use Dropbox because I like having access to files regardless of what computer I'm using or where I'm at. It is extremely helpful to me.

I use Tomboy because I am always keeping notes and information I want "at hand" while I'm working on any number of tasks.

One of my favorite abilities of Tonmboy is keeping the Tomboy folder in which all one's actuall note content are stored in a folder in Dropbox.

Not only can I use Tomboy and keep my same notes on any computer I'm using that has both, but if I ever have something go awry with my computer, such as installing a different distro, hard drive crash, etc..., I can have my notes back in a flash.

It's like having my Tomboy notes backed up and centralized all in one.

It's pretty easy to do too with the synchronization tools that Tomboy provides.

I gotta admit, it gets the job done for me.
