NOTE == ALL SCRIPTS ARE RELEASED UNDER THE GNU PUBLIC LICENSE!

Best of the best, not to be found anywhere else:

1. Make-a-cdset == Rip audio tracks from multiple CDs to disk and then burn them in/out of order to CDR/w (make a mix CD easily, with prompts for swapping CDs)

2. RPMSORTINST == Sort your installed RPM packages and view all the descriptions in one convenient file (searchable with ' less ')

3. TESTAFIO == Back up your files to multiple CDR/w's (just like tape backup) using AFIO; compression using gzip or bzip2!!
( NOTE: I haven't figured out how to RESTORE A SUBSET of files, contributions / advice / code WELCOME!!)

4. YECHO == Echo a string or piped output to current console and virtual screen 11 (Alt+F11) at the same time

============

o Backup scripts, (for Linux and Windows) - Each main directory (off /) is stored in a separate archive to avoid long restores and the 2Gig file limit; files in root dir are stored in their own archive w/o subdirs

o Backup critical Linux files (/etc, root, /usr/local/bin) to Zip drive

o Backup "raw" tar files to CDR/w without ISO filesystem (tar tzvf /dev/cdrom)

o Back up any directory to CDR/w in ISO format

o Rip application CDs to an image file (can then be mounted as loopback device) o Write raw image files back to CDR/w
