    Does anyone know of any good free online storage accounts? Something like diino.com except with a client that works on Linux or a web-based client?

    You can. I signed up but never used it. You can get a Firefox addon so it works better(from what I saw the box.net interface was crap). The free account is only 1GB though and the max file size is 10MB

    SkyDrive is sub-par at best.

    Use gmail

    You can't install the shell extension in linux, but there probably is something like it for linux, and this is what I use for online storage.
    Using firefox? Use GSpace. "If you are a FireFox person, and like to do everything there, then there is an extension called Gspace that allows you to upload files to your Gmail account. It works the same way as RoamDrive in that it overcomes the 10 MB limit by breaking files into multiple pieces. If you would like to make a filter for files stored with RoamDrive as discussed in the preparation section above, you should use the text GSPACE in your subject filter."

    Use Gmail if you want, but don't use it as your only backup

    Yea, and you have to give your name, address, and phone number.

    Just make a new gmail account, password protect the .rars, and you're good to go.

    Not like it has to be real info.

    And according to that article it has file size limits, so no thanks.
