Not sure it's the new script fault... As you can see from the messages it 
sends to the list, it's only touching /home/ for 

I just found there is a stale /tmp/update-website-in-progress lock file (from 
Oct 22), which is probably preventing the script from running.

BTW, Jeremy, can you "transfer" the cron job from gerard's account to my 
account so I can disable it right before putting the new script on-line?
