True. But when a new client needed to move his sizeable web site
to one of the servers I mainain - he gave me access to his account
- on a Verio machine - and I rynced cross country.
I did this for him as he tried to tar up his old site and his space
restriction was such that it was going to take him hours to do it
in pieces, transmit and rebuild. rsync did the job in about 1/10th
the time with only about 5% of the effort.
