After migrating, I noticed that the fan on my laptop was spinning up even though I wasn’t doing anything. A quick peek at the Activity Monitor and what do I see? Dropbox happily using 98% of the CPU doing… well, nothing that I could perceive.

I was keeping Dropbox on my laptop just for Blot, but then remembered that Blot had Git support too! So, I quickly transferred to Git, and am going to try to to use this from now on. It just makes sense, and I do hope it works.
