My Drush Rsync-ing
It sounds like pirate-speak for the Drush ship taking on water, and for me that was not too far from the truth. I gave up on Drush Rsync after a frustrating initial attempt at getting it to work in my Windows 7 environment a few months ago. It's difficult to get support from the Drupal Community for the Windows environment. Nearly all attempts to search for answers were met with responses like "Get a Linux box!" or "Use a Virtual Machine and load Ubuntu.", but usually I just heard 'cricket sounds'. So I just gave up and used other methods. I am usually the only one with a Windows laptop at Drupal meetups. It's not that the Drupal Community doesn't want to help, it's just that they are not familiar enough with the Windows operating system to be able to offer any assistance. At least that is what I keep telling myself. I have the same problem when it comes to Unix/Linux/Mac. I recently started attending a local meetup that is going through "The Definitive Guide to Drupal 7", a massive book of collective Drupal 7 goodness. When trying to help the others in the group (every one of them with one or more Apple products), I find myself saying "okay, open up that thingy that shows you the files on your computer." But I digress. Anyway, as our study group learned more about Drupal, I was constantly moving files from one location to another that I did not necessarily need under version control, which made me wish I was able use Drush Rsync like 99% of the rest of Drupalers.
