    I'm changing work locations and won't have the new laptop for a couple of weeks. Any reputable sites to park like 5 or 6 gigs of info so I can access them from home and office? I know they make usb drives but ahem...company won't buy me one big enough.

    Do you have VPN access from home? Storage is cheap, keep it on their server and have them give you a few extra gigs in your /X3pilot share temporarily.
