Amazon has a very nice little service for storing files.  However,
in order to use it at all, you need to agree to a big length of verbage
and then fish some dimes out of petty cash. Dimes are small and Amazon
Park Place is a clone of their service. You can store files on Park
Place using very simple code from any language. Set up user accounts,
control access, works just like Amazon’s.  With the help of Camping,
ActiveRecord and Mongrel, it does its job in ~400 lines of Ruby.
It’s home on the web is at: http://code.whytheluckystiff.net/parkplace/
If you’d like to give it a try, I’d suggest:
gem install camping --source code.whytheluckystiff.net
gem install mongrel activerecord
svn co http://code.whytheluckystiff.net/svn/parkplace/trunk parkplace
Please make sure you’ve got the latest Camping, Mongrel and
ActiveRecord. In the next few days, I’ll get this all wrapped up tidy
and handsome in a gem.
