Backup Strategy

I've got a Backup Strategy for my home computers!

1. I only care about my desktop (lensman), my email server (ups), and my web server (halcanary.org). My laptop (hiro) and my mediapc (dalek) contain no files that need backup.

2. Backup ups to lensman by way of rsync-over-ssh. Backup halcanary.org by way of wget-over-ftp.

3. I've segregated my files into directories:

If I am going to reinstall the OS, I'll grab a copy of /etc, but none of the system files need to be backed up

UPDATE 2004-08-12: I made a few changes last night:
