comment Can Virtualbox be configured to split a Virtual Disk Image in chunks smaller than 2 GB?
@jSepia the differencing image would grow over time when you make changes, until it reaches a size which seems not acceptable to you. Then you can make a new snapshot (and optionally destroy the old one, if you do that, a full upload of the disk image to Dropbox will be triggered once). Then the process repeats.

comment Time machine friendly virtual machine (VirtualBox) image files?
@Sid also you can store your huge amounts of changeable data outside of the virtual machine. This can be done using technologies like "Virtualbox shared folders", samba aka Windows shares, and even NFS (technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc754350.aspx).

comment Time machine friendly virtual machine (VirtualBox) image files?
Actually if you change so much data inside the VM, you can periodically make a new snapshot and remove the old one. This operation will merge the data, reducing total size of virtual disk image. Which will trigger a full TimeMachine backup for one time and then the whole process starts over.

comment How can I enable backspace key in VI?
(This question comes up in the Google search results for the "backspace not working" problem in vim.) The instructions in this answer didn't work for me. However, placing set backspace=2 in the vim config did the trick.

I also think that it's not quite the stackoverflow kind of question.
