Hi Joseph. Is your problem with rsync or cron? If it's the latter, my suggestion is to use iCal events as shown in the article, not cron.

I know Linux users will be aghast, but I have found iCal events much easier to create, manage, control, and understand than cron. And there is negligible difference in performance if you're just running the command once a day or so.
