Hmm. I think the router firewall might get in the way, but if I could do it it would be nice. (This is really a "nice to have" feature rather than a necessary one.)

comment Why has '-' been chosen as the backup file suffix for certain Unix system files?
@wurtel. Backup is a noun (as is setup and login). In each case, the verb form is two words, a prepositional verb: hence back up, or, in the past tense, backed up. You may find your English flows more smoothly if you follow these guidelines, and you will not have to create monstrosities such as *backupped.

comment What does dd stand for?
It makes a great deal of sense, and is therefore almost certainly wrong. Lexicography is no task for amateurs.
