This would probably be easier to do with a pull. Install cygwin with  
rsync and ssh, script up whatever you want, and add it to windows'  
"scheduled tasks". Out of curiosity, why do you do this instead of  
just sharing mypath on Samba?

I all pedagogikk er det essensielt at pensum presenteres  
intelligibelt. Det er et elementært imperativ for alle pedagoger å  
unngå eksessiv anvendelse av idiomer med fremmed opprinnelse. I de  
fleste tilfeller eksisterer adekvate og relevante synonymer på norsk.
