Check this out . . .

That's pretty slick I'd say.

I wonder if it works with multiple accounts? :P

You can copy files to and from the GMail Drive folder simply by using drag'n'drop like you're used to with the normal Explorer folders."

it's not too bad of an idea.... if you desperately need the space...

and it probably does work with multiple accounts.... you just have to have one drive for each account... :)

Well if you think about it, this could be an interesting way to share files.

So does it work like FTP? And does it generate a URL that you can give to others?

It was worth asking.


By the way, how do you get a GMail account?

Why don't set up a common account for Trusted members and put somethings like roms and stuff like that on there? Haven't read the article yet so don't know if we can.

That's exactly what I was thinkin. As soon as I can get a URL to sign up to GMail, I'll make an account for all trusted members to have access to, and so we can upload files. I have comcast, so i can quickly upload lots of nice files.
We'd probably have to have 2 or 3 GMail accounts for the trusted members, since I'm sure we'd fill up that 1GB.
1 account for music, 1 account for video files, 1 for applications, another for roms?
