I'll look it up. Wholly/Grail's advantage is that it references the quests with pre-quests, so you can find the start of a quest line, and also know where to go if you're missing some for achievements. There are others that do this too, but I've found this author to be much more responsive.

The only caveat is that Dropbox doesn't handle junctions/symlinks/whatevers very well, so unless you want to manually tell it to check for changes to files every time (I don't!), you'll have to actually move your AddOns and WTF folders into your Dropbox folder, and then set up junction points in your WoW folder, since WoW doesn't care if the folder is "actually" there or not.

Then, any time you change anything on one machine, it will automatically propagate to the others.
Dude! You've no clue how much time my husband has put into trying to find a way to have only one copy of wow on our machines so we aren't spending disk space annoyingly. Looking into drop box today (and hoping it works with Linux).
