I use it for AltLaw, of course.  I've noticed it's not real practical
if you want to store a large number of small files.  Requests
frequently require several retries before they succeed.  It's a lot
more practical to use it as a backup system, storing large files that
you only need infrequent access to.  Maybe Adjix has some way around
these problems; I haven't looked at it closely.
