Time to throw out your external backup drives, you can now use Gmail to store your files remotely. Jeremy Zawodny was the first I've seen to mention the concept of Web E-Mail: The New Hard Disk. As he mentions in a recent entry named Internet Hard Disk with GmailFS, its becoming a reality. How cool.
Richard Jones provides the following information on the GmailFS - Gmail Filesystem:
GmailFS provides a mountable Linux filesystem which uses your Gmail account as its storage medium. GmailFS is a Python application and uses the FUSE userland filesystem infrastructure to help provide the filesystem, and libgmail to communicate with Gmail.
