What do you think the benefit of those checks would
be if the script runs unattended at night? Might just
as well run the back-up and read the notification from
cron about the failure in the morning. In either case
you won't be up to change the tapes at the scripts run-
time. And I hope you're NOT planning on running the
back-up during working hours.
