Browsing an S3 account
A little bit ago I wrote a php program to backup the data on my linux computer (I know, I know…all the linux geeks are swearing at me for how stupid I am…I just don’t care).
I hooked it into S3 when that came out so I could have reliable remote backups. The only problem was that I couldn’t find a good application to manage my s3 account without writing one myself.
I tried an ajax approach, but I couldn’t get it to work (too hot).
I tried ficillio.us but it didn’t work how I wanted (too cold).
Finally, I found a firefox extension for s3 (just right!).
It’s just like an ftp program, except it works in firefox. It also works very well on linux.
