I'm on vacation today (hooray for pre-loading blog posts), but I thought I'd tell you about a little experiment I'm running while I'm gone.
It started with reducing the amount of weight I have to lug through the airport. Normally I try to disconnect from work when I'm on vacation, and usually that works out pretty well. However, I've got a few projects that I'm trying to get done, and I'm pretty sure that I'll want more than my iPad to work on. So I have to bring a laptop. I really don't want to bring both the Mac and the HP, 'cause that's a little overboard even considering the number of gadgets I usually travel with. But I also know that I may need files from both machines.
So the experiment is this: Leave the HP at home, turned on and connected to the internet. Bring the Mac with me. Use LogMeIn to connect to the HP as needed, if needed.
I only signed up for LogMeIn last week, so this'll be its first real test. The tests I've run at home seem to have gone pretty smoothly. Worst case, I can't get in, but I'll only be out of the office for three days and I'm pretty sure the world will not end whatever happens. :-)
When I get back, I'll let you know how it went. In the meantime, have any of you tried LogMeIn or something similar? How'd it go?
