i did not recognize the site, but when i connected to it and started
to bookmark it, i saw that i already had it bookmarked.

in checking, i found that it was from 2009-0514-09:08 pm when i ran
a search for backup and recovery sites.

i pulled the docs and tar file to check out later.

i agree, and i have already started writing scripts for both desktop
and laptop to sync just the common, _non_unique_ directories and files.

so, back to my original question, worded differently.

what directories and files should not be copied so that configs for
desktop/laptop do not corrupt configs for laptop/desktop screen?

i am presuming that '.KDE' is one of them, and what else?

i can got thru all directories and files, which would take time and
is what i am wanting to avoid. call me lazy. ;-)


peace out.
