I thought rsync was going to work for me, but for a time I thought maybe I was wrong. I just needed to figured out how to make it copy new files to the server. The trick, it turns out, is to make sure you remove the trailing slash from the source path if you want the entire directory to be transferred and not just the files and directories within. All is well now 🙂
While checking my server, I also noticed that the MacOS X shows a blue screen of death BSOD as the preview window for PCs. Nice.
