well, i finally got round to setting up one of the most exciting free software projects i've been involved in. exciting for its simplicity and usefulness - rather than from a technical perspective of 'oh ain't that greaaat cooode'

basically what i am doing is combining pptpd, backuppc, rsync daemon, debian-installer, apache2 with ssl, to provide a means to automatically install - and back up - debian multimedia / home / office desktop systems.

oh - and i took the oem-config .deb from ubuntu and hacked it into submission as well.

the evil plan is to sell preinstalled linux systems on ebay (Penguin PCs Online for not much money and then to make some money per month on offering an automatic backup service.

i think that's very cool, i dunno about you :)

p.s. .avi, .mp4 and .mpeg files are automatically excluded :)
