Random Musing Putting it together one piece at a time...

I recently stumbled upon an excellent shell extension for Windows which allows users to map your regular Gmail account as a virtual online drive on your computer. I thought this is an example of how technology is converging. Simply download the setup files, extract it into a temporary folder and run the setup.exe. Once done, you will see a Gmail drive in your explorer. Clicking it will bring up a username and password prompt for the first time. Once you're login, you can start to use your regular Gmail account as an online backup drive.

You can download the setup files from here

As mentioned in the site, it will be a good idea to create a label and a filter with GMAILFS to archive these files so as to prevent your inbox from clogging up.
