Dear Ole Backups

On Sunday changed my backup script from this one Time Machine for Tiger, to a plain vanilla rsnapshot on Os X.
Mostly because I can't get the damn excludes to work using that script.

The only significant changes I have made to the rsnapshot.conf file are:
logfile         /private/tmp/rsnapshot.log
lockfile        /private/tmp/rsnapshot.pid

That is, pointing the file to a directory that my regular user can write to; aside form that, there was no other change to be made.
