Sorry, but us long-time UNIX admins would greatly _differ_ with you.

I typically use 'find|cpio', and someone else mentioned 'dump|restore'
and I know 'tar c|tar x' is yet another.  These are _native_ tools of
the UNIX platform.

Ghost, Drive Copy/Image, etc... are great for dealing with NT which
doesn't like to be cloned.  But in UNIX/Linux, the native tools of the
OS are far better.

It is mathematically impossible for someone who makes more than you
to be anything but richer than you.  Any tax rate that penalizes them
will also penalize you similarly (to those below you, and then below
them).  Linear algebra, let alone differential calculus or even ele-
mentary concepts of limits, is mutually exclusive with US journalism.
So forget even attempting to explain how tax cuts work.  ;->
