We have a situation where we need to keep a ZIP archive of some data files available on our Ubuntu Linux server so that our satellite offices can grab the information through slower data lines.

What’s a quick, efficient way to only rebuild the ZIP archive file on our Linux system if a file’s changed, but leave it as-is if everything’s stayed the same?
I’ve been trying to figure out whether there’s a way that I can automate digging through the “referrals” on my site so I can see what searches people did to end up on one of my Web site pages.

But what I’d love is a simple script that will let me get email once a week with a sorted list of what searches people did to get to me. Doable?
