Not the same thing I suppose but I once proposed (might have been on
April 1) a scheme where I would mail myself large files using UUCP and
a bang path that caused it to go around the world and back to me.  When
it came back my system would pack it up again.  So basically my files
would be in constant travel and never sit on my own server other than
temporarily in the spool.

How's that for a cloud service?  ;->
