Check this out . . .

That's pretty slick I'd say.

I wonder if it works with multiple accounts? :P

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?
