I was questioning the thing about not getting the dot files, but now I
realize that this means not the dot files in /home. It would get the dot
files in /home/<username> though. You would get the config files for the
users. A little slow this morning.
Question: What is the 'sync' for? I haven't done this before and am
wondering what I've been missing.
