As opposed to spoon-feeding, I'm going to give you a point which is going to require thought on your part, Wesley.

Consider the following line of code:
Code:
tempfile=`mktemp /tmp/tempfile.XXXX`
...& what is done with it for the remainder of the script when multiple people are running the script on the same machine at the same time. Hint, it isn't good.

...but I'm a nice guy. I will even give you another hint. The answer for avoiding this problem can be found on Heiner's page:
