Also note, the --update code is fairly flawed, and prone to errors, but it was 
ok, since i was manually controlling the version numbers, and knew what to 
avoid.. basically, if the version number on the server is different at all 
(higher OR lower) it will download the copy from the server.. perhaps someone 
can help implement a better mechanism..

To be honest, this script was my first real bash script.. I was (and still am) 
a bash newbie, so to speak.

Happiness is like peeing your pants. Everyone can see it, but only you can 
feel its warmth
