[ubuntu-uk] Simple backup script

We always used to do a daily backup, but Sundays we did a weekly one.

Daily backups (ie. Mon-Sat) were kept 7 days, Sunday backups were on a
4-week cycle.

And, of course, we actually backed up to somewhere else... not to the same
system, as your script appears to do.

You could make it 8-weekly or something, if you think it will take you time
to "discover problems", but we tended to find 4 weeks was sufficient.
