It was funny, but it would have been more efficient to use tar over netcat instead of CP or rsync to initially populate the directory.  It would be a steady data stream to the network and wouldn't beat up on the file system as bad as rsync would.

Good read none the less. :)

| Windows admins use a virtualized CentOS machine to copy files because
| their own tools are not able to handle copying a bigger amount of
| data. :)
