Sharing Profiles via Dropbox

Great for sharing files. Great for sharing bash profiles. Great for sharing SSH keys. Great for the NSA.

ln -s ~/Dropbox/.shared/.ssh ~/.ssh
ln -s ~/Dropbox/.shared/.bash_profile ~/.bash_profile

chmod 700 ~/.ssh
chmod 600 ~/.ssh/id_rsa
chmod 644 ~/.ssh/  
chmod 644 ~/.ssh/authorized_keys
chmod 644 ~/.ssh/known_hosts

Now you can use the same key on all machines. Boom goes the dyn-o-mite.
