rsync: much cooler than ‘N Sync…

I've spent the past few hours nerding out to the wonders of rsync… it's nice little *nix program that lets you mirror the contents of one directory to another, wether it be on the local computer or to another computer 1000 miles away. It does incremental mirroring, which basically means that it'll copy the whole directory you want the first time, then each subsequent time you run it, it only copies what's changed, so every time you mirror, you get an exact copy with as little data exchanged as possible. Very cool. It might come in very handy at work for a few projects we're working on. We'll see I guess.

Not much else going on recently… Work is work, and it's the only notable thing that occupies my time these days. :\
