Head first into javascript (and jQuery)

Musings of an Anonymous Geek: Head first into javascript (and jQuery):
"Once the CSS was done, I was informed that I’d now need to take the tabular reporting table I just created and make it sort on any of the columns, get the data via AJAX calls to a flat file that would store the JSON for the dummy data, create nice drop-down date pickers so date ranges in the report could be chosen by the end user, page the data using a flickr-style pager so only 20 lines would show up on a page, and alternate the row colors in the table (and make sure that doesn’t break when you sort!)."

Dissecting Time Machine & Replacing It With rsync

Backup Central - Dissecting Time Machine & Replacing It With rsync
"With rsync (which is built into both MacOS, Linux, & FreeBSD, and can be installed on Windows) and a little shell scripting, you can mimic everything but the GUI and you don't need no stinking sparse files. I even wrote a little script that I'll share with you at the end of this post."
Must try this when I get some more storage.
