Using UbuntuOne to sync dotfiles across several, possibly remote machines. I don't know if this would work with say, Dropbox, because I've never used it but I guess it could be adapted to any of those cloud services if you can access them from the command line, and most importantly make a symbolic link to that directory.

The genesis for this is the fact that I like to use a)taskwarrior and b)my netbook. So I happen to have multiple computers that run Ubuntu and maybe I'm in the minority in that. I wanted my tasks to be available wherever I was. I still haven't figured out how to pull them onto my Android phone but I'll keep working on that.

Taskwarrior uses some text files stored in ~/.task/ by default. I initially attempted to just sync the directory but that won't work. At some point I asked in launchpad I think and never got an answer.

In the end I got it working like so... )
