The people of Pinguy OS distribution forked this great project called it "pinguybuilder" and made it available again for Ubuntu and its derivatives.

Have you ever though backups can make your life easier, do you make backups of your important data? or your backups usually outdated because you forgot to make a backup at the right time. I believe not much people make regular backups because many tools are too complicated or people simply don't have enough time.
Duplicati is very simple advanced tool that can solve your backup problems, it is free backup client that securely stores encrypted, incremental, compressed backups on cloud storage services and remote file servers. Duplicati is open source software (LGPL), written in C# and available for Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X. The Duplicati project started as "duplicity for Windows" but then went its own way. It works with Amazon S3, Windows Live SkyDrive, Google Drive (Google Docs), Rackspace Cloud Files or WebDAV, SSH, FTP (and many more). Duplicati has a built-in scheduler, so that it's easy to have a regular, up-to-date backup. Furthermore, Duplicati uses file compression and is able to store incremental backups to save storage space and bandwidth.
Camicri Cube is an great portable application developed by Jake Capangpangan for Linux, it is written in C# language which uses Microsoft .Net framework and it is cross-platform application (runs on Linux distributions and Windows). This application is under license GPL-v2 and freely available. Basically this application allow you to download packages from repositories and save them for later, so in this case you can install them when you are offline(no Internet connection required).
It is developed for those users who have slow Internet or offline Linux community, to make their life easier with offline package installation. So they don't need to install packages again from Internet after fresh install, simply they can run this program and use backup packages.
Camicri-Cube uses third party download accelerators (Aria2 and Axel) that has a multi-segment/multi-connection feature to speed up downloading of packages and repositories. Download Resuming for both is also supported.
