Someone should really design a DFS with a standard interface that allows
files to be stored in many places in many pieces, were the storage is
all automated and completely hidden from the user. Maybe a nice ANSI C
interface, strong crypto, RAID support, caching of course... nah, would
probably never get uses since noone is interested in things with uses
other then MP3s and kiddie porn...

Of course you won't get free space for long, since the "free space" game
is a money loser and everyone knows it. I can't wait for the bubble to
burst so those of us with tech but no plan to lose millions a day can
