Congtatulation...Nice feeling to see it working.

I now have my SoAS registered at the SS and I left it online for 2 hours..It is backing up my stuff automatically and across the globe.

Agree that the next step is how to make the information useful. As I look at the backup information I have problems figuring out what it is. A teacher would be overwhelmed if the child does not tag and document stuff well.

Looking forward to the next level of usage.
