comment rsync hack to bounce files between two unconnected servers

Okay, I've improved my solution. You need to create two port forwards to make the ssh service of server2 visible on server1.

comment ImageMagick import command gives error on windows?
@Muhammad Irfan: The error means that the DISPLAY variable is not set. If you get "localhost' is not recognized as a command", then you made a mistake setting it. Try set DISPLAY=:0 or set DISPLAY=127.0.0.1:0; many Windows installations don't know "localhost".

comment Can I virtualize my current XP installation within Ubuntu?
@NoCatharsis: If you use a dedicated disk for XP, try dd. Otherwise, it's a file in your home directory which you can simply copy. Backups have never been easier :-)
