Config Files and rc's

One strength of UNIX is to keep the configuration of its bits, pieces and tools in nice human readable text files. The users configs are ususally placed in his home directory and are subject to a long life, beeing moved and copied from one the next station. It's also the thing the user will moan most when he forgot to move the darn dot files to his new computer after he realizes that his 'newfs' just turned his last copy of them into shiny new blocks of free space.

To keep them backed up and accessible i put some of the onto my ftp server. Maybe you find something you want to incorporate into your collection, too. Make sure to tell your ftp client to display dot files, otherwise you probaly won't see a lot...
