This would be awesome. If you could also cover synchronizing files. Like for
those of us who carry a small laptop for notes, writing, email, wardriving,
etc. who want to sync their files with a main desktop machine.

Subject: [NBLUG/talk] talk idea (backing up your system)
I have thought about doing a talk on open-source backup methods in the
near future (3+ months away). Things like doing backups of drives to
other drives.. backing up using scripts, backup laptops to servers over
the network, etc. I'd talk about some different ways to do things and a
little about the various protocols. I'd probably do a live demo
(network or local) and release a perl script that would have some pretty
strong functionality. I'd also like to cover encrypting your backup
image or drive, as well as compression and verifing integrity.
(has this already been covered at nblug?)
Is this something you would be intrested in hearing about?
Is this something you've had trouble with?
Is this something you currently are wondering about or you already wrote
a script ?
Anything you would like to hear about in specific?
thanks for any and all input,
