  :)  what good is having multiple terminal windows if you 
don't use them?  most of the time i use only four of them per
project.

charge!

  now here's the fun, multiple terminal windows open and i only
want a certain one to be used but with booting i cannot be 
certain which ones are which.  :(

  may have to explore udev more.  the above script and modifications
are noted for future reference...  ;)  tks.  lol

  p.s. there is this thing called bup which i've installed and
used before, i'm sure it could be setup and fired off about every
few minutes to capture finer detail slices than what my current
backups are doing.

  i'll be pondering all of this some time in the future...  but
not tonight.  cheers,
