Geek entry, CoPilot, S3 and my laptop 

Well, work wise I have been really busy as we have been a man down. In between the work I have been trying to do something about backing up my MacBook Pro.

I have been playing with Amazon S3 and rsync.
Amazon S3 is basically a giant disk on the web. I downloaded Jungle Disk and was trying to use aRsync to backup my pictures etc. But it wasn't working, so I've gone old school and am using the CLI.
Works really well, although my poor 512/256 link is SLOW!
I'll probably do a whole post, or page on the website when I have it all sorted, I'd like to cron job it or something.

Second, is CoPilot. is an alternative to Webex, cheaper and as of this week MUCH cheaper. $5 USD for 24 hours access. And, it works with Mac now. Way Cool!

Finally, I read a cool post related to my backup paragraph above, someone who moved their iTunes library to S3 using Jungle disk. Excellent, might try it.

There we are.
