[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 feedback. -- david
