comment How do I make grsync exactly mirror my hard drive over multiple backups?
Just be careful not to use --remove-source-files in conjunction with it like I accidentally did (due to shell key bindings). Recovering from such a situation is messy and you might lose files.

comment What is the difference between “Redirection” and “Pipe”?
Is it accurate to say that "thing1 > temp_file" is merely syntactic sugar for "thing1 | tee temp_file" ? Since finding out about tee I almost never use redirects.

Unfortunately this doesn't work over ssh even if X11 is enabled.
