I officially know more about Rsync than I ever thought I would. It's a mighty handy tool.

Long story short -
rsync is written as a replacement for rcp and scp. One of the earliest applications of rsync was to implement mirroring or backup for multiple Unix clients onto a central Unix server using rsync/ssh and standard Unix accounts. With a scheduling utility such as cron, one can even schedule automated encrypted rsync-based mirroring between multiple host computers and a central server.

Currently doing a master <-> master -> offisite slave config.

Also set up a sql-based login system for both the primary and backup servers for ftp - annoying, as the backup's mysql config is just different enough to give a man fits. in the data directory rather than usr.



Beefy mac & cheese (made with veggie-meat, of course) with the remains of the rattatouile and green beans made for good eats while BHK and I watched the Kevin Sorbo episode of Middleman. The show keeps getting better and more entertianing... I wonder how long it'll last? I hope it'll keep steam going for another season.

I want to start watching Dexter - BHK is about a season ahead of me. Time to put episodes on the PSP for the commute to work.
