Customer Question
You had a question...

You had a question 1 year ago related to this ; he first script that needs to be written is automating the shutdown procedure. Write a script that will perform the following tasks: Prompt the system administrator for all valid input parameters.
Ask if a wall needs to be sent, and if yes, send the message.
Ask if this is a shutdown or reboot, and process appropriately.

Technician's Assistant: The Tutor can help you get an A on your homework or ace your next test. Is there anything else important you think the Tutor should know?

I would like to try that script in my Ubuntu system.

Hi, my name is***** you still need help with this? A couple of questions:

1) Is this bash or what scripting language?

2) "Ask if a wall needs to be sent" -- you mean a warning message of some kind? What's a wall?

3) I would think that "all valid inputs" would include the amount of time to wait before shutting the system down or rebooting, so that would be an additional input

Programmer: Steve, Consultant replied 2 years ago

Ok, attached is an offer. If you approve it, I can get the script to you by the end of the day today (5/24). If you don't accept it, I can opt out and see if another expert can help you.

Hi there. They raised the dollar value of this question for me, so if you still want it, I can give you the script today. When I provide it to you and it looks OK, you'll need to accept my answer and rate me at least 3 stars. Does that sound like a good plan?

Programmer: Steve, Consultant replied 2 years ago

Here's the script. Once you're happy with it, please accept my answer and rate me accordingly. Thanks! Have a great night!

you have charged $55.00 to my account it was not authorized by me bad practice replenish my account ASAP! Your script was to be on a word document.

Programmer: Steve, Consultant replied 2 years ago

I don't have anything to do with the billing, sorry. I'll refer this to customer service. You haven't accepted the answer yet, so I don't know why you got charged. Here's the script in a Word document.

Programmer: Steve, Consultant replied 2 years ago

I realize you declined the offer, but I created the script and put it in a Word document and posted it here. Unless you accept my answer, I don't get paid anything for helping you and writing the script. Can you tell me how it worked out and accept the answer please?
