    SMEStorage is actually a management solution for all your cloud storage including Google Docs, SkyDrive, MobileMe, etc… The software allows you to have a mountable icon on the Macintosh desktop that will give you folder level access to all your cloud storage in one place.

    The SMEStorage management allows you to also use a cloud storage location you have as a backup for another of your cloud storage locations. I backup my MobileMe to my SkyDrive cloud.

    I am a layman Accordance user for the past 4 years and am still learning. The link to the video learning tutorials is great for my personal learning about how to better use Accordance. However, I am finding that sitting through some pastor’s meetings each month, that having to learn Greek and Hebrew might we good. With some many issues with the various Bible translations, about the only way to know what the Bible actually means is to know the original languages.

    WOW, a lay person taking Greek and Hebrew; am I crazy or what?
