    The title is pretty self explanitory, but I want to be able to access an external HD that is setup at home. I want to be able to access it from school or from work. What are my options. I saw western digital had the mybook world edition, but i read it doesnt work on mac and you have to pay for the service. Any suggestions?

    If you have a .mac account, and can wait for Leopard, it might be the answer. The quote below was pasted from the Leopard feature description at

    And now, back to my Mac.
