How do I copy/migrate my home from old NIRD to new NIRD?

You should take the opportunity to clean up your home directory and archive or copy only data you actually want to keep.

One way to copy your entire home directory would be by using the rsync tool. Log into old NIRD and

$ rsync -avzh dirname

This will recursively copy your directory/file dirname into the directory old_home on new NIRD $HOME folder. Please note that you need to provide your username. Also you need to provide your password unless you have set up passwordless login.

You can read rsync options with man

$ man rsync
