[ubuntu-uk] How to sync Liferea on two PCs

To sync my feeds up between my main laptop, Ubuntu-vmware image on my
Windows work-supplied laptop and the desktop in my home office (aka back
of garage! :)) I just rsync my liferea profile to my home/backup server.
I have alias's set so I can 'put' and 'get' as required. Although a bit
manual, it means I can both backup my feeds/articles and push/pull them
to which ever machine I'm using at the time.
Below is the alias's from my .bash_alias if it helps:
alias lifeget='/usr/bin/rsync -avz --delete --force -e ssh
stuart at server:/mnt/backup/stuart/LifereaProfile/ /home/stuart/.liferea_1.4'
alias lifeput='/usr/bin/rsync -avz --delete --force -e ssh
/home/stuart/.liferea_1.4/ stuart at server:/mnt/backup/stuart/LifereaProfile'
I do basically the same for my thunderbird and firefox profiles also,
but as well as having aliases for these, I have a bash file which has a
minimal amount of checking in it, to try and avoid writing the wrong way!
Hope that helps a little.
