Waiting for 2 AM

Here’s another reason why BSNL sucks: It spoils your sleep patterns.

The last few nights I’ve been staying awake late trying to make my downloads start peacefully at the strike of 2.

Automated scripts do exist. But the things you can automate to download are limited. (For instance doing an apt-get upgrade, may require user intervention. apt-get upgrade -y may be dangerous. And how do you go about downloading stuff from a Gnutella[LimeWire] network from a script?) Anyway, I’ve saved a few nights thanks to Shreevatsa‘s script that restarts the modem – I then can do wget kind of downloads.

Ok. Its 2. Here I go.
