Here are some places to start:

  * Look into Apache Webdav. It will run over SSL and allow Windows users access.
  * Depending on what your goal is, a CVS or some document management system may be a good solution.
  * A Wiki? Something like Dokuwiki or PMWiki allow you to share all sorts of files.

I think there may be multiple solutions. That is, if you are willing to look at your problem from the perspective of what you are trying to accomplish, rather than trying to force a particular technology to apply to your problem.

Submission + - Why iPhone Flipping Will Fail

An anonymous reader writes: The press has reported how many of the customers on line last night for the iPhone had nothing more in mind than to look to make a quick buck reselling the units. The joke may be on them as MP3 Newswire points out. For there to a market amenable to this there has to be more than a great demand. There has to be a finite supply of an item. With concert tickets there is always a finite supply for a given night. Flipping a Playstation 3 was briefly profitable, because while Sony would over time make as many units as the market called for, there was a finite supply available for those who wanted it in time for Christmas. The Apple iPhone has no such time restraints, therefore on a theoretical level they have an infinite supply. The first wave of iPhones may sell out, but the great majority of consumers can wait until the supply catches up.

Submission + - The end of internet radio?

hellopolly writes: According to this article "The Copyright Royalty Board (CRB) has announced its decision on Internet radio royalty rates, rejecting all of the arguments made by Webcasters and instead adopting the "per play" rate proposal put forth by SoundExchange(a digital music fee collection body created by the RIAA)." Apparently this is between 100-200% of all the revenue that a small independent webcaster can generate. I know I would not have bought quite a few CD's if would not have heard it on Radio Paradise first. So do the record labels really want to drive internet radio out of business?
