Every night at home, I use SuperDuper! to clone to network drive (also  
in my home) via a wireless connection. It usually takes about an hour  
or so, but it sure is painless. The key is to clone to a sparse disk  
image. For the first clone, you can have the drive hooked up to your  
machine so it is fast, and then just do smart updates after that.  
Cloning over a network is nicely described in the SD! documentation.
