>From the article, "...Gmail's copious storage space has inspired a number of programmers to come up with completely novel ways of using the service. These include a "weblog" or online message board that uses Gmail to store postings and a desktop file system that plugs straight into the Gmail system."
And speaking of desktop file systems, Lycos UK announced last week that they're about to launch a "virtual desktop" allowing users to "drag and drop" and store any type of file with the 1GB of space that Lycos UK offers for about 3.50 pounds/month.
