Hi !I'm trying more and more to be able to access my data everywhere at any time easily and synchronization in real time if I modify.All this web 2.0 stuff and cloud computing are really what I need I think.I know already some and wanted to know what you are using.I'd like something : cross-plateform (I'm a linux user), free (as free beer) and free (as free speech) if possible.If I need one special software to use it, it's ok if there is a version for usb keyagenda : google calendar and thunderbird + lightningmusic : mpd server + phpMpall kind of files : dropboxI'm looking for something for my address book now and maybe my bookmarks also (but not depending of my browser)what do you use ?thank you
Hi martvefun. I wanted the same setup as you do now about a few months back. I went from setting up remote desktop on my home network using dyndns.org but didn't work much for me. My solution? Pendrive Linux! Now I have Ubuntu installed and running on an 8 Gb flash drive. It's handy. All I need is a computer that supports booting up through USB and my pendrive linux. Plug it into the computer, boot the computer from the flash drive and I have all of my files. Try it. There are tons of tutorials on how to do it. I hope it works for you.
yes that's a good idea, I should do it to have the required apps in case.but what I was thinking is more in the case I'm at a friend's house (I've brought nothing with me) and I want to listen the song of the artist I've just discovered, get the email address of somebody, find out what I'm doing next week, show the cool website I found but I can't remember the url,...how can I do all of that easiest way ?also I've several operating system on my laptop, I use another computer sometimes and I may buy a smartphone soon. I want to have as less as possible duplicated information.
If you are running Linux/ubuntu, the most recent version offers a cloud application to store/update/manage files on the cloud called UbuntuOne.It creates a folder on your computer and uploads the files to the web which always maintains the most current version as a 'backup' copy.The Mail application, Evolution, uses it to store your address book, too.Firefox offers the 'Weave' utility that manages your bookmarks,etc the same way.

If that's the case, I can only think of doing a Remote Desktop (XP, Vista and Windows 7). I've tried it on several computer. But jihaslip's idea is really good. I just subscribed to UbuntuOne and will be trying it out if I have more time.
thank you for your answers.I knew UbuntuOne but the problem is that it works only with ubuntu (I'm using archlinux most of the time and plan to try other systems). Dropbox do basically the same.I don't know the remote desktop concept but I'll have a look
Why making the job more difficult? Just install ServerZilla, make FTP server, set username password, copy paste the data in the server folder and login from another PC and download.
