    The script was update at the time of this edit to allow the use of backups to external harddrives and a iDisk, it also include variables to control all needed functions and backup locations

    That's pretty sweet. Nice to see you've got encryption in there too.

    I'm guessing this is the result of thread from a while ago. I'm glad you got everything to work together. Nice idea to put it on the web.

    Nice scripts! You might just want to let people know what growl and growlnotify are.
