automount and umount script

Posted 08-16-2012 at 01:30 PM by ted_chou12

This is a sciprt that automounts and unmounts usb devices, because I realized my system does not consistently automount drives, and sometimes gets mounted incorreclty:
#mounts start with f
tbmounted=(f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z)

for each in "/dev/sd"* ; do
	for alphabet in ${tbmounted[@]} ; do
		if [ "$mname" == "sd$alphabet" ] ; then
				mounts=$(mount | grep

Fuck Ebay!

I sold an item on Ebay two months ago, the buyer didn't liked it, and ebay authorized a refund without my permission. But there is a $7.20 charge on my credit card for the item sold fee. Now ebay ask money from me.

Two weeks ago, I decided to trust Ebay and decided to issue a reimbursement of $100 dollars in TOTAL. The ebay agent told me I could get my $7.20 back thru some kind of transaction procedure but NOT directly. I trusted him cause he promised me....
