I Am Legend I Am Legend by Richard Matheson

I didn't expect much from the book that inspired George Romero to make Night of the Living Dead (I am not a fan of zombies), but I was pleasantly surprised. Published in 1954, I Am Legend had a huge influence on the modern vampire and zombie horror genres. The story focuses exclusively on the activities and inner dialogue of a man who believes he is the last survivor of a plague that infected all other humans with a zombie-ish form of vampirism. The book is well written and doesn't pull any punches. The survivalism/vampire trope is basically an excuse to explore human emotion in all its variety.

Trivia note: Richard Matheson also wrote the Star Trek:TOS first-season episode "The Enemy Within."

AKICIDW/LJ: sync mac laptop and desktop?

I need to sync a few folders between a mac laptop and a mac desktop. What should I use?

I have a lot of storage available on my web hosting site. I am willing to shell out for .mac or mobileme or whatever the latest such thing is, if it's easy.

rsync has already been suggested. I could do it that way, but after looking at the man page, I decided I don't want to think that hard.
