Automate backups to external HDDs when mounted
A quick backup automation script based as extensions to this TUAW article on this tutorial. It will likely become redundant when Leopard ships, but I needed a solution now... Follow the tutorial linked in the beginning of this post, and just replace the tcsh script with the one in the downloads section. (Don't forget to set the appropriate variables in the top of script)

- Supports the backing up of multiple source directories
- Uses rsync to cut down on un-necessary file transfers
- Designed to allow for a minimum time between backups (default 24 hours) to prevent un-necessary system interruption

To Do list:
- Add network based rsync support (to initiate a backup on the detection of a "home" network);
