I am sure that there is a number missing from '1 years' and whilst you
wrote your script on day one, others cannot, even after a few years of

As for improving your script, I think you need to take another run at
it, 'if [ -t 1 ];' Most people will not even know what that means.

Some people can edit config files directly, others cannot or do not want
to, why do you think Windows is so popular ?
