I want to work on the same code at home, at work or at school in different computers and across OS but I don't want to have to save it in a flash drive. I tried to put it in Dropbox but for some reason, some files got lost or modified during the transfer (at work I use a Mac, at home I have a PC). Can anyone recommend me a Cloud IDE or Web based IDE I can use to avoid moving my code in a flash drive?

I might set up a source code repository that is accessible from all those locations, something like SVN or Git. You'd have to fork out for hosting that, since I'm assuming that you would not want this to be public (which would be free on SourceForge or GitHub).

You can get free private repositories on Bitbucket for teams of up to 5 people.

Any particular reason why not? That's pretty much how I transfer ALL my code: simple, private, fit on your keyring, and usually only requires a single drag-and-drop. When I do it for work, I usually use two (just in case one craps out on me).

But then, I'm an old fart.

How do you envision that to address the problem?

There are alternatives to Dropbox, for example Google Drive. However, I wonder why files are getting lost or modified when you use Dropbox. That shouldn't happen, not even when you are using computers with different operating systems.

Add it to a compressed folder and mail it yourself, if DropBox isn't working.

Or you could invest in a NAS device!
I find that it's pretty handy to be able to access all your stuff from basically anywhere, including your own SVN or Git repository.
And it's an ideal backup medium, of course.

Same for me. no problems at all. I have also successfully used Microsloth's SkyDrive with no issues.
