First, I want to sell my 12" Apple Powerbook and iPod, but for several reasons want to avoid eBay or Amazon. Any ideas of where else online I could try to sell it? Alternatively, if anyone here is interested, PM me for details.

Also, and more importantly, I have a little more than 29 GB of music on this computer than will erased when I restore OS X Panther. I plan on buying a new computer about one month after I sell this one, and need a place to store the files in the meantime, preferably free but at most very, very cheap. As of now, I have two ideas for the free route: I could register 30 Gmail accounts and email myself the music, but that would be horribly time consuming. Also, from looking around, I've found many sites that sell online space that offer "5GB, free for the first fiteen days" or something similar. I could use that, with a little creativity, to last forever, but that is more effort than I'd like to put into this. A third option is burning all he music to CDs but that would take like 40 discs and I don't want to do that. Any more ideas?

I take it you don't have the ability to burn to DVD? The capacity is much higher, if you could borrow one. About 4.5 gig each on those.

Another option is to buy a USB hard drive (which you could still use for your new system). They're not a buck, but relatively inexpensive.

Now, just wait a minute!

This is what I would suggest as well, not only for this specific case, but also for the long term. You can use a USB hard drive to easily backup all of your important files on a regular basis. They are usually in the range of $90 to $150 for a 40 or 80 GB drive.

I would back it up to CD.

You never know when you are going to need a back-up.

People never make backups when they should. This is your "I-told-you-so" moment in time where you could have made a backup, and you are going to kick yourself later if you don't.

Willful ignorance of science is not commendable. Refusing to learn the difference between a credible source and a shill is criminally stupid.

In theory, you could've used the shell:// url scheme for that, but most browsers have blocked that due to security concerns. I would probably run an apache server with php scripts to perform similar functions, for example PHP Ping.
