RE: Google Docs



fixed

Heh. I saw a gator yesterday just offshore from the fish cleaning station
down at our local boat launch.

No more city life for this boy.

Thank god for the city :)

We get spoiled with the high speed stuff.

Why not just get an Asustor NAS for $200 or a used Dell Server to store your
docs if you have larger ones ?

Then connect it to the cloud when you need remote access. Pretty easy to do
these days.

If you're running a business you should probably have at least one server
with a good data backup to tape or removable drive anyway I would think.

The cloud ain't everything. Just sayin :-)

They should be able to do both. You can easily test things out with any
google/gmail account. And the cool thing is syncing is automatic since
Google docs is more Google Drive now.

I went from office to open office a while back, and am slowly trying to
make the change to Google docs from open office.

What's holding me back? My ISP... DSL with a 1m upload limit that
bottlenecks everything else. Apparently they think it's still 2001 and
people are running personal FTP servers and web pages for myspace. :)

Also, a couple of our customers use the latest and greatest MS office and
those formats are always compatible with docs (or open office). Easily
remedied if they save it to an older format.
