HowTos

This is an easy way to take backups and putting them on a remote site. I invented this script in order to put backups on a reliable remote site where I unfortunately only have a user account.

The prerequisites for this script is:

* Public key authentication over SSH set up with the remote site. If you dont have this, follow this guide.
* Gnu-PG installed

This is the entire script. Everything written in capital letters should be replaced by your own information. If you want an explanation of each section of the script, look a bit further down...

    The developers of Monumental Failure [Steam, Official Site] sent over a key for me to test out their hilarious and totally historically accurate game about building monuments. I might have been lying about it being historically accurate, since I’m pretty sure they didn’t have jetpacks when this stuff was built. You’re controlling two groups of people at the same time, to build a monument. While that doesn’t sound too difficult, you are given the most ridiculous way of building them. From sliding a big statue down a massive slide, to using jetpacks with an item attached by bungee ropes.
