 Backups With cron

Mac Devcenter introduces us to backing up using cron.

"rsync is a directory synchronization tool that's smart enough to copy only new or changed files, thus speeding up some backups significantly. If you plan to back up a large directory that only partially changes from day to day (your entire ~/Documents directory, for example), rsync would seem to be the best solution. Unfortunately, as you see in the table, rsync doesn't preserve resource forks."
