This completes some pieces of a puzzle I have been looking to complete for a while.
Other recent pieces include:
* Me wanting to backup my family photos online, rather than some other offsite storage option (suggestions have been family members houses, the car and work as places I could store another backup but none of this is continuous and involves ongoing effort).
* Google Docs/picasa now offering to store any type of file.
* The price of storgae going to US$5 for 20GB for 12 months.
So now I have a way to get the backup onto google in a synchronised, throttlable, cheap way...
Hope this provides some inspiration for you guys.
BTW Before this release I was trying to work out macfuse and gdocsfs... but no doubt would have still had trouble with the sync and throttling (bandwidth charging in NZ of course...)
