There are a lot of ways to do this, but the one I would recommend is to change the main folder to be owned by a group that you, your wife, and the uid running the thumbnail script all are members of -- probably by creating a new group for the purpose. Then if you set your wife's umask to 002, directories she creates will be available to you and any other members of the group. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
