    Re: Backup plan

    I think you are trying to be too specific about tiny areas on a file system. Get /etc/ and that's most of the configs. IMHO, if customized comfigs are being put somewhere else, that's a design...

    Re: Ubuntu DNS for Home Network

    /etc/hosts is not DNS. It can't only be used by the local machine. Sadly, the hosts file doesn't have all the necessary details that a DNS server needs.
