A recommendation of beer

Recommending beer in general is a fairly pointless exercise, it is after all generally regarded fairly highly by most. In this case however I’m recommending a particular brand of beer.

Chimay is readily available, even in the government run wasteland of the LCBO, and is an excellent beer. It’s a Belgian Trappist beer that I was first introduced to after a colleague of mine named a server after it. Be warned however that it is on the fairly strong side, with the red label version running at 7%.

To make matters more interesting it only seems to be sold in 750ml bottles in Toronto.

RSyncBackup Python Module

I’ve finally got around to uploading my backup scripts, now named RSyncBackup. There are two scripts: RSyncBackup a Python module that provides a convenient interface to rsync, and an example script that demonstrates how to use RSyncBackup.

The RSyncBackup module is the same version that I have running on my machine, and so far I’ve not discovered any bugs with it. If you aren’t familiar with rsync take things slowly with this, otherwise you could end-up with less data than you started with.

If anyone uses this please let me know.
