comment Can't seem to get rsync right for backups
I would not use that "delete" flag in an automated script. If your primary drives go down, then rsync might think /media/Sea01 is empty, and then delete everything on your secondary drives. If you need "delete", I would carefully run that manually every couple of weeks or so.

bounty granted ... I'm holding off on accepting the answer for now in the hopes that a developer may stop by and provide a more authoritative answer

If you turn off the screensaver with "xset s off", then does it still matter whether you have "s blank" or "s noblank"? It seems like if the screensaver is off, then it shouldn't matter whether it blanks or fades to black.

The sudo apt-get dist-upgrade line seems unnecessary to me for the purpose of this post. Most people who are trying to install ffmpeg probably wouldn't want to trigger a distribution upgrade as a side effect.
