Good thing that 12.04 comes with a backup tool that actually pops up
automatically at least once to ask you to configure backup settings
then! You don't have to use it but it is pro-active in telling you it's
there and available. This should fix the knowledge problem.

Laziness and stupidity, you just can't fix.
