 CLI for noobies: got backup?

"You meet the nicest people at the command line: no posturing, no nonsense, just a "get the job done" mentality that seems to get lost when the focus moves away from real functionality to making pretty windows. Get too far away from computing's core values and you could end up with a bug-ridden, security-free, viral infection magnet of an environment. Oh, wait. That's already been done. This week we'll meet one of those nice people you can meet at the CLI and take a look at a command line tool for the most fundamental -- and the most overlooked -- part of personal computing: making backups."
