Backing up stuff

Chatting on #morphix with the good ol' Morphix crew, we came along the subject of backing up your cruft [ahum]. Anyway, as I'm lazy and have been running scripts to do so for quite some time already, I thought it nice to share those with the world.

I've put two scripts online: my daily/weekly/monthly backup script for homedirs and /etc etc, and a script for automatically dumping database files on a weekly/monthly base. Of course you need to adjust those to fit your own system, but with a little fiddling [and a bit cleaning up], you have a nice cronjob-driven backup system :)
