Expanding a raw image file

On one of my customer's devices, the backup software requires that the backups go to a separate partition (or drive).  However, the customer only has one raid array and the bulk of the space is in /home.   To work around this limitation, I created a raw image file called backup.img, which gets mounted as /backup.   After the software performs its local backup, I use duplicity to backup /backup remotely to a backup server at my location (with encryption).

Learning Python

I am reasonably familiar with Perl and PHP languages.  Recently though, I have taken it upon myself to learn Python.  I've played with Python a few times, and it seems to be very powerful with lots of useful functionality under the hood.
