- set up automated nightly backup of my wiki to my laptop
- actually probably use ncftp to pull whole website.
- set up automated backup of server15 to both blur and littlewing?
- littlewing is down and blur is going away. consider external HD instead.
- littlewing is back as of 11/26.
*get anon ftp working on server15
- might be too much work, move ftp files to http instead?
- decided I'm going to convert all the downloads to http: don't know if ftp will ever be set up, and that way I avoid all the firewall problems.
