We shouldn't ever need to move things from one DoES computer to another on a USB key when there's such a good network.

This could be done if we have one dropbox-like shared directory between all of the public computers and laser cutter machines, that was treated as a convenient public resource -- rather like the pot of USB keys beside the laser cutter.

This directory should have a permanent README.txt document in it at the top that says it's a public directory, and things are going to get deleted from it when it's too cluttered.

@MatthewCroughan did this on theory, but it might not be working yet. When it works, it needs to be documented in the page.

Ideally, it should be accessible to anyone's computer on the network -- probably as a drag-and-drop webpage interface, but better as a dropbox-like direcory if it's not too -- so that people can copy their work into it and thence onto the laser cutter machine seamlessly.

I've added notes to the Wiki regarding the existence of both a local and external facing Nextcloud instance (which also includes a tunnel to the local samba!) along with the details for the local smb (samba) server. I'll create documentation that explain show to utilise both soon.
