The short answer could have been "utilize analog and digital inputs" but my case here is quite old system having only one input.
I didn't really look into this question until I had to, today.
Some days before, when I was experiencing troubles with sound in Steam I installed pulseaudio and during search for it noticed "network" word in description. So I thought maybe I can set it up so I will send sound from second computer to first(over gigabit home LAN), which...

backups using rsync

The beauty of using rsync as a backup tool is that the backup is in a plain old directory structure, so there is a lot less to go wrong in a recovery process (and many ways to do the recovery).

The simplest rsync just makes a mirror of a directory structure:
rsync -a --del src dst

remote shell access

Remote (and secure) access to another system makes use of the ssh package.

At its simplest, this provides secure copying from one machine to an account on another remote machine:
