Meet my favourite new backup tool: Duplicity. It can do incremental encrypted backups to a variety of destinations, for example ssh, webdav, Amazon S3. It also seems fast compared to other solutions I've tried, and its really really simple to get going!

Farewell, rsnapshot and rdiff-backup!

HD DVB-T2 terrestrial TV using the PCTV Nanostick 290e
I've been following this project for a while; I've even contributed some reverse engineering work to it. (I bought one of the devices from dabs a while back). Note that the majority of the work has been done by Steve Kerrison and Antti Palosaari.

However, up until today I've been unable to use it as I didn't have a DVB-T2 signal. This changed on the 15th of June when Craigkelly's digital switchover was completed. Unfortunately the driver isn't available in mainline linux yet, so I've just forward-ported it to 2.6.39. The temp patch is available here.

It seems to work fine; I'm using (an unmodified!) tvheadend as a headend, and XBMC as a network client. Its a pity the actual content is still as poor :)
