Yay for Windows hackery.

Except it’s not really Windows hackery. Just frustration fueling some geekery.

After hunting for days to try to find a decent, free, Windows-running backup system that would RAR my files and upload them to my various webspaces, I finally just decided to write the damn scripts myself.

A download of Abakt–a small, clean, sexy program, even if it doesn’t support RAR–the writing of two small FTP scripts (one for dailies, one for full weeklies), four tasks in Windows Task Scheduler. I now have a complete backup system that rotates backups every week and does incremental backups every night.

Now to sleep, so I can work before I go into lab tomorrow.
