A random question. Does /etc stand for Et Cetera? I can't really see why 
it would, but then I can't think of anything else it would stand for. Et 
Cetera means literally "and so forth", so I'd expect a folder called 
/etc to contain miscellaneous files rather than configuration data.

Anyone know?
