Remote Server for free: Gmail!

I got this tip from David Pogue's blog: the GMail Drive. It sets up your gmail account as a drive on your Wintel machine:
GMail Drive creates a virtual filesystem on top of your Google GMail account and enables you to save and retrieve files stored on your GMail account directly from inside Windows Explorer. GMail Drive literally adds a new drive to your computer under the My Computer folder, where you can create new folders, copy and drag'n'drop files to.
Sweet. I've been searching for cheap remote back up for important Foundation documents, this seems like a a dream come true! For those who don't know, GMail's storage limit is about 2.1 GB now and growing. It's still in beta, so you need an invitation. Anyone who hasn't tried Gmail should, and I'd be happy to toss you an invite.
