    Re: Why is backing up so hard?

    To me rsync isn't a backup solution. It is great for mirroring data for redundancy reasons (to prevent data loss if a hard drive fails etc.) but it doesn't allow to e.g. retreive a file you deleted 3...

    [SOLVED] Re: My first bash script, help needed.

    Hello again,

    If your script is working then great, however I do agree that it is odd that using a single '=' worked as that is the assignment operator whereas '==' is the string comparison...

    Poll: Re: What Music Player Do You Use?

    Yeah, this is how the C I/O library works. The abstraction that it presents to the C programmer is reading and writing entire lines. Getchar and friends simply read from the libraries buffer.
