If you really truly never have both computers logged in at the same time
(so Tomboy is never running on both computers at the same time), then
your idea will work. If you ever forget and leave them both on, the
results will probably be unpredictable to you. I strongly recommend not
doing this, as you will inevitably mess up and lose notes.
Manually invoking sync from Tomboy is not *that* bad, if you remember to
make it part of your log in/out routine. As I said earlier, though,
we're hoping to make it a more streamlined process in the future.
