Gmail FS

This is so cool! It turns your Gmail account into a Linux mountable filesystem! (via Slashdot). What this means is you can store files onto Gmail account as if it is like your own harddisk and can be accessed from anywhere :-)

Actually I already have this sort of ‘remote harddisk’ on my computer setup for a while, using Apache WebDAV. The nice thing about webdav is that it is accessible by Mac and also Window transparently. And since I ran my own server, I basically have over 100Gb of ‘remote diskspace’.

Still, I am impressed with this hack is made possible using libgmail.

ps: I have 4 Gmail invites. Drop me an email if you want one :-)
