Re: Bizarre

It makes some sense to put collaborative work on the internet -- provided the aggravation of preventing/controlling simultaneous update is less than the aggravation of shipping files around manually. Why someone would pay money to put personal files on someone elses' computer subject to all manner of calamities? Beats me.

(OK, OK, backup to the cloud might make some sense for some use cases. But I bought a 16GB flash drive at the grocery store last week for $8 USD. That works too. Ironically, the drive was purchased to sneakernet some large files via snailmail that were proving to be too difficult to move through dropbox.)
