	I like rsnapshot. I retired two years ago, but that's how
we backed up all our unix boxes and one didn't have to remember
much to recover files in a panic situation. Just go to the
last snapshot before whatever terrible event happened and, unless
you put your irreplaceable gem in and then blew it up between
backups, it's just a case of cp or scp.
