If you need a way to store your papers online to save the time of emailing an attachment back and forth to yourself, then you should try Google Docs. It is a free to use document application suite that gives you three applications including word processing, slide presentation, and spreadsheets. The applications are compatible with Microsoft applications so you can edit in either. The benefit that I have noticed is that it saves your work every few seconds while you are working and the documents live on the web so you don't have to stop and attach the documents to an email if you are going to another computer or if you are working on a public computer that times you out. Another advantage to Google Docs is the fact that you can make your documents public with a link, so Google is essentially giving you free web space in addition to a free application suite. The public link or URL allows you to share your document with others and give them the option to work on the document too if they too have Google Docs. To get Google Docs you just need to sign up for a free Google account.
