comment Why do I need to put sh before running .sh files?
@TJ, but you do need to worry about stuff like sl or lls or l... i.e., typos. Just leave . out of $PATH. Also, you may not (or should not) necessarily trust everyone on your system. For example, suppose there's some exploit that allows an attacker to drop an arbitrary file into some directory, but they need you to execute that file in order to escalate to a better exploit (e.g., collect data and phone home). Defense in depth!

There's a race condition here: when you connect to WiFi you have a two-minute window in which TM might start before the script notices and turns it off.

comment “@” symbol in password in applescript
Note that on most Unices, you don't want to put passwords in command lines because they can then be viewed with ps and the like.
