Bytebros and Bash Scripting!

More Bytebros work was done today. I locked down all the rounding issues in our reports and changed the data levels display. I’m waiting for Joe to contact me about some craziness in the pair length calculations.

For the low cost of 30 minutes of re-learning bash, I wrote a script that splits Tranzoa monthly backup trees into two DVD-Rs. It has sanity checking, runs in low memory and low hard drive environments, and is extremely simple to use:

scott@tara:~/rsync$ [0] ./burn.sh month-tree
...
Please insert Disk 2 and press and key to continue. [Enter]
...

I have no idea how I would have gotten this done in Windows.
