[REBOL] Mutually Assured Backup
From: dvydra:orion-it at: 4-Aug-2001 9:40
I find myself in the following situation: I have plenty of drive space and
a resonably fast DSL connection for a flat rate. There are a few files on
my drive that I would really hate to loose. What is the easiest way back
these up off-site? The files are private so I would need to encript them.
A solution that keeps popping into my head is to use Rebol/View/Pro, of
which I am a proud owner, to back up my encripted files on the computers of
several friends who also have an "always on connection" such as DSL or a
cable modem. I should be able to request my files at any time. Since there
is a chance that someones computer may be off-line, I would back up the
same file on several hosts. This would be a classic peer-to-peer solution.
Perhaps Rugby can be used to connect the peers.
Is anyone out there looking for a similar solution. I would appreciate any
