Some sites that need it:
rm -R .dropbox.cache/*
My Dropboxfolder can be placed anywhere you want, and it provides an install-and-forget smoothness of functionality. There's a web interface, if you need to get at your files from someone else's machine, but you wouldn't want to use it often. The online help is first-class, and sharing files from your dropbox is easy.
How do I move my Dropbox folder to a new location? - you have to select the root folder, and allow Dropbox to create a new Dropbox folder therein, and populate it…
rsyncd my personal folders to a GNU/Linux or MSW platform, then allowing Dropbox to run I get some of my local files re-labelled like this:
phones (linux-bhao's conflicted copy 2015-11-28).txt
and a copy is downloaded from my online Dropbox. This would be difficult to diagnose if I wasn't competent with
diff. The local (renamed by Dropbox) copy is always the one that is correct. I'm not exactly clear yet why Dropbox does this. Most worrying is when a
.git/index gets this treatment, thus breaking the Git repository until I've manually restored my locally renamed file to over-write the one that Dropbox downloaded for me, having decided that was more appropriate.
OpenSSH is not a single computer program, but rather a suite of programs in the OpenBSD operating system that offers an alternative to unencrypted network communication protocols like FTP and Rlogin. While OpenSSH is not actively maintained for operating systems other than OpenBSD, a dedicated team occasionally releases a version that can be ported or used in other operating systems. This has allowed OpenSSH and its derivatives to account for an almost 88% market share as of July 2008.
This is a filesystem client based on the SSH File Transfer Protocol. Since most SSH servers already support this protocol it is very easy to set up: i.e. on the server side there's nothing to do. On the client side mounting the filesystem is as easy as logging into the server with ssh.
Historically, Telnet provided access to a command-line interface (usually, of an operating system) on a remote host. Most network equipment and operating systems with a TCP/IP stack support a Telnet service for remote configuration (including systems based on Windows NT). However, because of serious security issues when using Telnet over an open network such as the Internet, its use for this purpose has waned significantly in favor of SSH.

I've switched to using this combination since Sept 2013, and I find it very convenient, allowing me to quickly login to my bookmarked sites from Firefox, Google Chrome, from my Android phones, or from any web browser anywhere. I think it's worth the $20/yr.
One Time Passwordsare for accessing your vault from a dubious machine. Each one is only valid once, so doesn't matter if they're key-logged on a corrupt system. https://helpdesk.lastpass.com/security-options/one-time-passwords
Firefox LastPass Password Manager has informative review comments. You should get the up to date version. Once installed, don't let LastPass remember it's own login password - that's really insecure. Just keep that one password saved somewhere else, and make it not guessable.
Ctrl+Alt+H is also used by Evernote Clearly's Highlight functionality, so I changed the assignment in LastPass to
Tools > Add Siteto manually enter the
Password, which can then be clicked through at
Dropboxs log-in screen (

Chrome, but works in Firefox.
You need to fill in your login details, but just before sending them, tell LastPass to Save All Entered Data (an option in the icon's list), which it will, and you save that (as another editable item in your Vault). Next time you visit that site, click on the LastPass icon and you'll see it's offering those saved details as AutoFills, which you can send for login.

Firefox keeps all your personal settings in one Profile folder, which makes it very easy to move around. It was my preferred browser for this reason, with all of my passwords encrypted in Firefox under one strong master password.
You can edit Firefox's configuration files directly by navigating to

Live Bookmarks are a folder collection of bookmarks that originates from a web feed, such as one that Wordpress automatically produces, like this: http://momentary.eu/feed/. Navigating to that address in Firefox shows the feed, and asks if you'd like to
Subscribe to it as a
Live Bookmark, and where to save it.
I'm choosing to save all of mine in one parent Bookmarks Folder, because then I can use the Brief Add-on to show me all the feeds in that folder (
options > Feeds > [highlight the folder where the Life Bookmark folders are saved] > OK).

is really easy, and one of the great features of Thunderbird. On my netbook, my profile was here:
C:\Users\jo\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\xnss9y17.default. If I delete the contents of that
*.default directory, Thunderbird just rebuilds it, effectively creating a fresh install of Thunderbird, but you can equally replace the contents of that
*.default directory with a profile you've backed up somewhere, and Thunderbird uses that profile, with all the email settings and personal preferences that are in it. This makes Thunderbird a very portable tool. Having set up once on my MSWin netbook, I can copy the profile over to a new GNU+Linux setup.
