You can password protect the rsync daemon to make it a bit safer. I don't think you can schedule jobs on the reader (you need root privileges for that), but you could have a script that did the syncing and then slept for five minutes, all within an infinite loop. The script could also enable and disable the network around the syncing, to drain the battery less. Take a look at the start and stop apps for my sshd daemon if you want an idea of how to do that using netagent
. I can also upload a copy of rsync here if you don't feel up to building a cross-compiled version yourself.
If you felt really ambitious, you could try to make the script only rsync when the notes directory was modified since the last time it was done. You'd probably have to build and install something like find
to do that.
