Backup with rsync a la time machine: a proof
I am struggling for backups since ever. I assume just like anybody. For my personal machines I used rsync in combination with my script taritdate.sh. Then I kept reading online about using rsync for incremental backups but I could not find any simple example. So I did this little script: Continue reading
Less unix, more linguistic and phonetics: a script to automate praat

A small script: taritdate.sh tars directories with dates

Some unix commands I want to remember and an example from recsys
There are some simple unix commands that are pretty useful but time to time I forget about. I often use them in handling large data sets and I am always surprised how a good pipe might save time and resources making possible to handle large amount of data within a small resources. It might make the difference between having an answer or not.
