comment What are some great OS X Dropbox uses?
thought about version control at all, it would do this all much better. Seems to me you couldn't manage too many sites in this DropBox manner.

then really you should be deploying to a test server, than mucking about with a shonky DropBox solution. - You can just have a script run to do your FTP / SFTP / Rsync or whatever, I don't really understand the "Saves me having to FTP", since you still (I assume) manually throw the files at DropBox.

Why not just share the web deployment folder with Windows? I don't see this as a reason to use DropBox.

If you've got the Transmission web interface running, why not just open the .torrent file there? You can just paste in a .torrent link.

comment What are some Textmate alternatives that have the completion key feature?
Losing customers is no problem when you have no new products to ship, all updates are free.

I should also recommend zsh instead of bash as your default terminal shell, you get M-x style commanding in zsh (and a lot of other nice usability features) - especially when you use oh-my-zsh (consider it a starter kit for zsh)

I'll give it another go, perhaps I made a mistake before.

comment Is there a way to evaluate OS X without purchasing Macintosh hardware?
I'm suggesting something a bit more casual than leasing (read cheaper, since that seems to be Billy's main concern.)

comment Is there anyway to mount a webpage?
Ok, httpfs is not suitable for your task, it will not mount a http directory structure, it will only mount fs style images like ISOs, DMGs etc. What you need really is a script to grab the URLs you want.

Please note that not all keyboard layouts have the  symbol. For example, Thai layout does not.
