Using ownCloud to sync game savepoints and app data

I'm using this since some time - at most for OpenTTD, but it should work the same way for almost every game or app data you want to keep in sync on your desktops&laptops.

Tested as always only on Linux, 2 easy lines in the terminal and you're done:

[email protected]:~$ mv .openttd ownCloud/my-openttd
[email protected]:~$ ln -s ownCloud/my-openttd .openttd

Done on the first computer :-) On the second (and possible third, fourth, ...) please delete the directory if it exists and then repeat the second line of computer one:

[email protected]:~$ ln -s ownCloud/my-openttd .openttd

If you've configured ownCloud correctly, then you should be able to resume the game on both computers - just don't try to play on both the same time ;-)
