comment Remote backup of local server applying Rsnapshot
So you want to keep backup and rsnapshot in sync over time and not just do a oneshot. AFAIK there's no easy way for that; rsync is probably the best you can get - or rename the folders manually.

comment Remote backup of local server applying Rsnapshot
So you actually want to merge the backup directories of one rsnapshot installation into the directories of another installation? Otherwise rsync/tar/whatever would be enough.

comment forward vs. backward symlinks: administrative practice?
This is a rather simplistic view typical of Linux (or should I say Ubuntu?); the OpenBSD way is to have more partitions, not fewer.

comment Time synchronization of machines on LAN to GPS NTP server on the LAN
@NateLockwood: ntpd checks the server as often as needed: You don't have to tell it the interval. Please read the FAQ. The startup of ntpd is handled by your OS - typically it should "just work".
