TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
On my current project, the network is inaccessible from outside the
office. We all have home computers, but we also travel a lot.
My current solution is a web hard drive. I keep a copy of our current
operations manual there, as well as everything we're working on. I move
things in and out as needs be; the copy of record is always the network,
but if at 10:30 at night someone has a document problem, (which does
happen, about once a week), they can get what they need.
If your documents are really large, you may have to pay for space, but
you can get quite a bit for less than $10 a month.

Any of them might be used for work purposes.
For those in the same situation, what do you do to keep them
"synchronized" with the latest versions of the files that you are
Before you state the obvious (network), keep in mind that the work
computer is behind firewall and difficult to access, and the laptop
is usualy used unconnected, such as on a train or in the backyard on
a picnic table.
