      I hafta ask -- why aren't you simply creating a symbolic link?

      sudo ln -s /home/sysop/spider.new /spider

      Not sure how much file space is used by ~sysop/spider.new but
      it's getting duplicated with a 'cp'. A symbolic link is simply
      a "pointer" yet effectively connects /spider to ~sysop/spider.new.
      On the other hand, if you want to keep the spider.new directory
      pristine in case something goes wrong... 'cp' is not a bad thing.

      Sorry for jumping in out of the left-field bleachers. :)
