Just got a contractor to setup a C6 base pad for the new Shop building. The base took 32 tons of C6 rock. The building is due for completion in 3 weeks. I will need to run the power underground with tie in to a sub-circuit in the house. Service head is large enough to support expansion. It won't be long before I start moving tools to the shop. Really anxious now to get this project closed so I can get more work done before summers end.

Inspired by the dsc in his post,, I decided to try and get the number of tries part working, and here's what I came up with:

set -x # remove/comment when you no longer wish to see debugging output

case $1 in
        # shift so that $@ only contains the command we're interested
