Google Docs and Zoho Writer also allow you to edit them online. You can also just upload stuff to MediaFire or Box.net.

That’s grand .. cheers… What about when I convert a web page to pdf with the firefox add on, is it possible to save to a personal folder on one of these utilities without pasing through the save-to-desktop passage?

I like Dropbox. It basically creates a folder on your computer that you can throw stuff into that you want synced online. I’ve never had a problem with it.

@dverhey In that case you’d still need to download it to your desktop.

As for converting a web page to PDF – no, you can’t if you use the Firefox add-on, as that add-on creates it on your desktop. No way to circumvent that.However, a Google search turned up ExpressPDF which I suppose you could use in combination with Mailinator to receive PDF’s online.

And perhaps if you install Google Gears you can also just copy text from a webpage into a Google Docs file.

Right, yeah. Didn’t read the full question. It also has an upload from the internet method, though. I think it kinda defeats the purpose, though. Oh well.

I just use fluther. But only for small bits of information in the form of questions and answers. For larger documents, I edit the crap out, and then again use fluther’s question or answer option. In fact, I use it for all of my files, including photos: I just change the avatar with photos now and then.

All you really need is fluther.

@Anatelostaxus : when i was in Ireland with my wife last year, we were standing outside a restaurant in Clifden study the menu exhaustively when suddenly i realized that i was blocking some one else’s view, so i scuttled abruptly out of the way and said “Oh! Excuse me,i didn’t realize i was in your way!” and the woman said “No, no, you’re grand, you’re brilliant,” and i said to her, “Please tell that to my wife.”
