rsync, webdav, and users, oh my!

Finally figured out how to upload my site without flipping back - and forth- between Linux and Win4Lin: quit using both webdav and rsync to upload the files.

My problem stemmed from using rsync to upload weblog/index.html, which gave it my userid - and then trying to overwrite it using webdav, which used the 'www' userid. Neither can overwrite the other's changes, so files uploaded one way must be deleted by that user, and then re-uploaded by the other user.

Or, I can just delete those I uploaded using rsync, and let webdav handle it. Which I did.

In other words, this entire post is really a test message.
