Trick is to use an ElasticIP for master, and you also have to register once ( per IP/user combination) ... Assuming you're also using the same homedir mounted from an EBS volume.

Indeed I was also think about using dropbox but the registration stuff
is annoying too much to make it a generic plugin.

An Elastic IP address plugin for StarCluster would be nifty though,
for instance to get a fix URL for your IPython notebook sessions.
