I didn't say this, but the find command would be the way to locate
files with certain ownership or time characteristics. For example,
if you changed the permissions to octal 000 on each file as it came in
from the PC, the following command would find then for you:
for i in `find . -maxdepth 1 -perm 000 -type f`
chmod 770 "$i"
Have this as a cron job, running with root privilege maybe, every minute.
