Yeah, I think rsync is what's underneath Gentoo's portage system. I
could be wrong about that but stuff about rsync comes up at times on
the gentoo-users list. rsync seems to work really well for keeping one
location coherent with another.

I suppose my mild 'concern'  about rsync, and I know *nothing* about
rsync really, is that maybe I want to do a number of snapshot backups
of sessions along the way and be able to go back to any one of them
should I need to. In my limited usage model I'd really just like a
link from Ardour into something like k3b that wrote it to a $0.50
DVDRW disk that I can throw in the corner and forget until I run into
a real problem. It's hard to do all of that on anoterh hard drive in
another room across a wireless network with people using MythTV
sucking up all that bandwidth....

Again, just my thoughts on the matter.

Cheers all and have a great weekend everyone,
