Thanks for this explanation, as far as command substitution, I like
the new way $(), going to start using that.? It seems a bit more
readable to me.

Yup, I think $() is easier to read and nest. But you will still mostly see `` and $() isn't very "portable" (if I can even use that word in relation to shell scripts :).

(And I'm not bored, don't know about everyone else)

Cool. There is a wide mix of folks on the list and at meetings, and it's sometimes hard to judge what's useful and what everyone already knows.
