I use DropBox all the time and highly recommend it and it is free! Install a DropBox folder onto your Desktop and anything you put in the DropBox folder is automatically copied to the 'Cloud' (i.e. the DropBox company file servers). If you also have a DropBox folder on your Office PC's Desktop then everything will appear in there too when you login to your Windows desktop and also any other PC/notebook you have. No more emailing files to yourself - it's all there in your DropBox folder! Just use the folder as your 'work' folder for any documents or software you are currently working on and they will always be available wherever you are.
Use this link to register and get an extra 250MB of storage free or watch a video to show you how useful it is. I use this every day and I highly recommend it!
Just be aware that if you use this at home, it can increase your 'download usage' significantly if you make large changes to the DropBox folder on a daily basis. This can eat into your ISP's monthly download allowance without you being aware of it!

Prey - free Open Source based laptop tracker. This software reported my position (my house) and emailed me my photo taken by my laptop webcam and even gave a picture of my front door and garage via google street maps as well as my house number and postcode! It works by looking at WiFi access points near your laptop when you report it as stolen. Why not install it now. You can track your laptop by logging in to the website. Just make sure you leave a guest account with no password on your laptop so that the thief can log in, as it only tracks once someone logs in.
