Sync .bash_profile with Dropbox and OSX

Here is a method to quickly sync your .bash_profile between machines using DropBox in OSX.

$ cd ~/Dropbox/ && mkdir profileSync
$mv ~/.bash_profile $ln -s Dropbox/profileSync/
$ln -s Dropbox/profileSync/.bash_profile ~/.bash_profile

The only other app specific files I’ve synced before were Textmate bundles. If anyone else has and recommendations please comment.

    I’ve also added my .vimrc file using the same method as above.
