I searched my archives and was surprised to learn I hadn't ever recommended Dropbox before. I was reminded when I received an email from them letting me know they had a new video from CommonCraft (the xxx in Plain English folks) explaining how it all works. In a nutshell, Dropbox is a cross-platform folder synchronization service. After installing, you'll have a new folder on your Mac, Linux, and/or Windows machine (and iPhone) which syncs through the cloud, so if you pop a file into that folder on your PC, you can access it from your Mac or the web. I use it daily - almost never use my USB key anymore.
The free service gives you 2GB of space, and you can upgrade to 50 or 100GB if you really need to. I've been just fine with the 2GB. If you decide to sign up, you can use my referral link and I'll get an extra 250MB, but you can sign up directly if you don't like that sort of thing :-) Do sign up though, it's a great service!
