Perhaps you could add a line to have the log copied to your /home.
My original script saves the log file to my home directory, I changed the script for 'publication'
just caught your interview in the mag, nice read. Paul is doing a great job with mag DYT?
Nice to know johnboy, good luck with it. BTW,
I run the script as root (su). It seems to make cron happier.
It all works OK as is but I would have liked the cron part to have worked as I have another script (work in progress) that harvests the download size and totals it per month so that I can keep an eye on my 'metered' connection and warns me if I get near to getting a surcharge.
I'd like to know if anybody gets any mileage from this.
