Yes, mileage might vary. I have a backup connection in my router if my
ADSL fails, and if that also fails, I have a backup backup connection in
my Windows workstation using cellphone 3G.

I have not deleted any documentition from my Debian server yet, but I do
not know what might have creaped to there, and how to remove it
properly. Many packages to include documentation, and some kind of
'removealldocs' command would be cool for me ;)
