Linux Mint 11 and Getting Tomboy Notes To Sync with Ubuntu One

I've been playing around with an old laptop, due to the new laptop going to a shop for a keyboard... So, what do most of us Linux Nuts do when we drag up an old machine? We fiddle with it, right?  Yup, that's what I did. I had to put new distro on it.

Not being a big fan of Unity, But I DO love what Ubuntu has to offer and does. Really I do. I'm just not big on the interface's and some of the desktop environment changes right now. Maybe latter. So, for now, I'm sticking with the old Gnome 2 environment, and Linux Mint.  Oh, Right. I'm getting side tracked.

Old Laptop. (A Toshiba Satellite A45)
New Linux Mint 11.

I got Mint Installed, and then was syncing Google Chrome, etc, and thought that it would be nice to have access to some of those Tomboy Notes that I setup back from Linux Mint 9.  But, Ubuntu One info wasn't really "there".  I did a little Googling, and found this blog post*, that had the one secret line that I was craving...

https://one.ubuntu.com/notes/

I added that line to the server, see image below.. 

Got the "Syncing Dialog"

So, I kicked back and enjoyed the syncing...
And Viola! The notes magically appeared. :)

One could also use Last Pass to Sync notes, and Passwords too, if they wished.
