Fix SSH login delay

When I google around for fixing SSH login delay, most articles tell you to add the UseDNS no you the server's sshd_config file.

Host <hostname>
    GSSAPIAuthentication no

This article will show you how to set up fast, fully automated local and remote backups for a small home network using standard GNU/Linux tools.
