I actually figured out the problem. Ironically I figured it out when I was not only not working on it, but not even thinking about it. I was driving home from a lnog trip tonight and it jsut suddenyl came to me. The date system call doesn't work the same in Windows, and it was waiting for input but never giving me the prompt. As soon as I remove the `date` we have go time! Sorry for the waste of space. Cheers.
