I think that’s a pretty interesting usecase, escpecially since he tunnels the UUCP over SSH.
I actually thought about using UUCP for scalable peer-to-peer networks, but other ideas like RSS over UUCP (even more useful for podcasts) seem to be pretty good too.
While SSH is a good system for doing remote, interactive command execution, UUCP may be better for batched and non-interactive jobs. It’s certainly worth adding to your toolbox of possible network transport options.
Then, did anyone try mail over rsync?
