[Server-devel] Changing to symple rsync for XO laptop backup

While the "rsnapshot" looks good for our Nepal school/firewall/backup
configuration, it assumes that both the client and server are continuously
running, which we know is not true for the XO laptops themselves.
I am thinking of developing instead a script that performs a once-a-day
rsync to the schoolserver. This would probably not be able to run at
startup, but rather a cron job that checks to see if the XO is connected
to the school server, and has not backed up today yet, and performs the
"rsync" at that time.
Let me know if anyone else is working on anything like this to avoid
re-inventing the wheel.
