Wow, i didn't expect that to happen so soon.
Here is the tar command pipe...
tar cf - <parent of offending directory> \
| bzip2 -9 >> foul-name.tbz2
...tar will send the output on stdout (-f -) of tarball (-c) of the
parent directory of the offending directory name. Bzip2 will then
compress the tar output (given on the stdout) to the fullest extent
(-9) possible. Tar'ed & compressed output will then be stored in file
If the size of foul-named.tbz2 is ~30 kB, send me this file as email
attachment. Otherwise, please allow me to download it via FTP or
HTTP. In all case, please keep the size less than a MB or so.
