    Hi Voronich ,

    In the OP, given

    1. Convert the snapshot dir's datetime name to epoch 2. In the trip script apply the epochs to a parabolic function: y = x^ +2
    x is the epoch equivalent of the directorys' timestamp and y is the value on which the decision to backup (or not) is made - as determined by applying the function to the epoch.

    Is that of any help ?

    A user level that continues to overstate my experience :-))

[Corion]: Oh - I released a new version of some module, thanks to a pull request. But I don't consider "update Makefile.PL" and "update author tests" as "writing code" ;-D
[marto]: sounds fun, the opposite of my weekend :P
[Corion]: marto: You wrote Perl? Or did you have to work (and wrote Perl)?
[marto]: the fun part, I had no fun this weekend, very stressful :)
[Corion]: But I feel an introductory talk gestating, working title "Reading CPAN" - how to read module documentation, how to judge a module, how to read the module tests/examples
[Corion]: marto: Ouch :-/ The kids are making trouble?
[Corion]: Meh - food becons, and colleagues are staring at me, talk to you later, sorry!
