The script should work, I don't see any errors in it. It's a little spartan compared to some of the startup scripts I've seen (like this one for a Minecraft server), but that just means it's easier to debug.
Hahah! I could throw in some more stuff in just to make sure it has something to crash. Shortly, though, I'll be writing a cron bash script for backing up the pg database. I'm sure I'll break something there.
Nothing wrong with the kiss philosophy
Keep it simple stupid.
I follow it everyday
Take it easy all
I've generally managed to avoid this philosophy, but sometimes I get sloppy and forget to over complicate my work.
A little off topic but do you guys know if startup scripts will still work on OS X Mountain Lion?
Have there been any changes with startup scripts since 10.6?
Not that I mind this being tossed in here, but I do recommend posing the question in the Mac section. I don't know how many of the Mac guys come in here looking to solve Mountain Lion questions.
