An AppleScript to easily backup Uplink save game files
Authored by: UltraNurd on Jul 06, '03 10:25:00PM

You can combine tarring and gzipping into one step; just specify 'z' as one of the command-line options to tar, as in "tar czvf". You should probably make the suffix of the output file .tar.gz or .tgz, so StuffIt and other GUI apps know what's up. This shortens the second line of your script.
