MP3tunes Locker (aka Oboe)

So it was recently brought (back) to my attention that MP3tunes is offering unlimited storage space in their online music locker.

MP3tunes Locker: Your Music Without Limits @ "All your music online - free!

Oboe is an online music locker with unlimited space. With just a few clicks, access your music anywhere. Free your music from your home computer - cut the cord and sign up now.

Unlimited Music Storage

Yes, we really mean free (though you may have a short wait). Or beat the rush and get your unlimited space now with Oboe Premium:

* Larger music files

* Full customer support

While I use a couple of different remote access products to handle the streaming of my content from my home machine to my other devices - namely Winamp Remote (powered by Orb Networks) and Streampad - I thought... "what the hell, I may as well back it up online too. It doesn't cost anything". So, I'll let you know how it goes in a couple of weeks. I've downloaded the Oboe Sync application (on both my Macbook and my home Media Center machine). Most of my music (about 10K unprotected MP3s with a ton of other DRM'd stuff that won't be included) is on the latter. I started the sync 18 hours ago, and according the app... I've only got another 258 hours to go. :-)
