Wonder how long Goolge will put up with their email service being abused for different purposes? The tool seems to be quite cool, though. Might try it.

Can do nothing but 'df':

otto:/gmailfs# df
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda3 8404360 7733696 243740 97% /
tmpfs 193508 0 193508 0% /dev/shm
gmailfs 1024000 55296 968704 6% /gmailfs
otto:/gmailfs# cd /gmailfs
otto:/gmailfs# ls -al
total 0
otto:/gmailfs#

ah, ic, need to copy a file to it first. I thought it was the way to access the mails.


pattara@otto:/gmailfs$ cp /vmlinuz .
pattara@otto:/gmailfs$
pattara@otto:/gmailfs$ ls -al
total 1237
-rw-r--r-- 0 root root 1266230 Aug 30 01:44 vmlinuz

cp and rm seem to work!
