Did you use this "SpinDownUSBHarddisks" there are several choise,which
did you use ?
I hate vi i think that is the editor available,can i use gedit on my
linux desktop to save the script and then use ftp client filezilla to
copy it to the required dir in the slug.Then i could ssh into the slug
and cange the attributes of the script,will this work ,i am a newbie.
How did you do it.
All the best Bobbyshafter
