backup backup backup

The 3 most important rules of computer operation, no? So I’ve been flying naked here for several months… ever since I made the switch to Apple, I’ve not had a good backup strategy. A cool thing though; now that all my home machines are Unix I can leverage my mad shell scripting skillz to automate even more repetitive tasks!

So, last night I created a basic shell script that did the job. But in addition to that, I wrote my very first Applescript! I used the Applescript to wrap the shell scripts so that it would prompt my wife with dialog boxes for when to put in the CDR for example. Fun Stuff!
