WebChat Users Site
WebMaster Incorporated and WebChat.org are
creating a new service for users of the WebChat Community. This
new service gives 10Mb of web accessible storage to each user
and channel. Access to the website will be through the use of
DriveShare the new RAS (Remote Attached Storage) software that
will shortly be available by WebMaster. DriveShare allows users
to mount a remote server as a drive on their system allowing them
to create, edit, copy and delete their web pages as if the website
was on their local system. These pages were created and edited
in real time using this process.
How it Works
You will shortly be able to download the DriveShare
client and once installed you will enter in your nickname, password
and choose a drive letter. After that a new drive with the letter
you have chosen will be mounted on your system. This drive will
have a container for each nickname that you have specified. Under
that container will be a list of directories that will include
your nickname and channels. to. For example if your nickname had
access to three channels your drive would have 4 directories:
Changing into one of those directories would put
you into your root dir for the following:
These directories will be created the first time
you write a file into them. It is our hope that people will add
links to their channel and user blogs as well as other links and
files of interest. Though we don't consider this a service that
requires really high security it should be noted your password
is never stored on your local system and all the information that
is transfered to and from a mounted drive uses SSL.
When will this be available?
NOW! It's in beta (with all the caveats that go
along with beta code. Just click on the link at the bottom of
the page. We would appreciate all feedback regarding this service
and the stability/performance of the DriveShare system. Though
we soon plan on supporting multiple Operating Systems the first
client that will be available will be for XP, 2003 and Vista.
We plan on an OSX and Linux client in the very near future.
