So, recently I made a post asking if it was possible to share data between two computers without cable, rednet, or pastebin, just side-to-side, and seems like not, My proposal is to make computers mountable on a directory when requested, and not automatically, to be able to manage files from it. This could be a bit of a security issue, but the user can always encrypt the computer. This would be useful for sharing private programs, that you don't want to share. Or trying them under other environment, other than yours, and make it an installation-test PC. Calls would be normal, and we would be able to do fs.copy("/bin/myprog", "/computer/bin/testmyprog")

Not really a good idea for security reasons.

Don't make me laugh. I just pick up your computer, place a disk drive, empty startup disk, place computer, I have all your data. Done.

Not with the new settings, where you can disable disk startup.

Then dan could add a setting which controls the access to this API.

one of the 1.8.9 versions allows it for block computers and turtles too. Command computers are an exception.
