Simple Backups Using rsync

I found this page on Easy Automated Snapshot-Style Backups with rsync the other day. Since I’d recently bought a new 120GB hard drive ($35 buys a lot of storage these days!) I decided to set up one of my extra machines as a backup server and bash out a script to automate backups. It’s a little rough and needs some customizing touches (command-line flags, anyone?), but it gets the job done; you can get the script here.
