    AppControl script.

    I just installed this script and thought I would pass on an idea I had using it that might help others.

    When BackeRupp launches it turns on the virtual device "BackeRupp is running" (obvious, not clever). When this device is on it is the condition for a recurring event that launches Johns AppControl every minute and a half to run with a setup to monitor for the BackeRupp process and if running turn on the BackeRupp virtual device via event and if not running to turn off the BackeRupp virtual device via event.

    The end goal is to add conditions to other events I dont want to run during backup. This would reduce system load during backup and prevent the backup from having to miss open files (not that it does, just not sure).

    I love how HS allows you to tie together things that werent designed to work with each other. Further details available if anyone is interested.

    Later, Terry (and thanks for a great script.)
