I'm currently in Egypt, and my Internet connection goes up and down a
lot. rsync --partial --timeout is great, especially when combined with a
little script that checks whether it failed due to timeout, and in that
case starts the transfer up again. I think it would be a good feature
for rsync to support itself. Something like:
When a timeout occurs, automatically restart the transfer.
