external storage question

Postby jbike » Sat Dec 29, 2007 8:33 am

It seems to me, since the xo has limited internal storage, that external storage (such as provided by gmail) would be often used. When connected online, from the journal, could a script be written to make it easy to drag journal entries onto a gmail folder much like they can be moved from the journal to the sd presently?

Thanks,

You might try setting up what is called "GmailFS". I haven't attempted this yet, as my XO hasn't arrived yet, but should be possible :)
