One of the limiting factors in being able to effectively run a local version of the Brain on a more mobile device is the size of internal files. Especially for large brains this can run into several hundred GB in hard drive space. It would be useful to have an option to define the location of the /files directory eg on a NAS or server of my choosing, and still have that structure be regarded as 'internal'. So when I drag a file into the brain it still gets inserted into a unique folder inside /files as an internal attachment, but those files are secure off-device. This should be applicable to exisitng W, M & L formats as well as upcoming iOS and Android builds.

Ultimately I'm guessing when the mobile versions are implemented we will have to use a smaller brain, or have some way of designating which thoughts to sync. 
When I do a sync after a full day of work (I don't do it automatically) it takes at least 10-20 minutes at non-peak time. This is not really viable for mobile versions.

Harlan posted late last week regarding sync times.  Basically we have been implementing  a lot of updates to WebBrain lately.  These should cut down the amount of time its taking to complete your syncs at the end of the day.
