A 'Go to work!' reminder script
Authored by: bithalver on Mar 12, '04 01:48:53PM

You have never seen any kind of Unix, haven't you ?!?
min=`date | awk {'print $4'} | cut -d":" -f2`
hour=`date | awk {'print $4'} | cut -d":" -f1`
looks really awful to any Unix geek. If you want to get the hours and minutes with date, use
min=`date +%M`
hour=`date +%H`
