[phenixbb] Sharing a Phenix project via Dropbox

Do you have the dropbox app on every computer, so that the files can be
accessed through finder?  I use Google Drive to sync phenix project
directories between my 3 Macs, and usually it works perfectly.  If I run a
job on one computer, I can open a phenix gui on another, and it will show
the intact job history, including jobs run on a different computer.
Sometimes I get a error that 'this is not a valid phenix project directory'
when I attempt to import a job folder created on a different computer.
When that happens, I just make a new sub-folder within it, make that the
new project folder, and move on...so maybe I'm running into the same
problem as you and ignoring it.  Usually it's problem free however.
