# Goes through the Day One journal and moves entries that start with text which
# matches the regular expresion search string to a new journal location. It
# also moves any associated photos. Day One doesn't currently support multiple
# journals, so this is currently only useful for archiving a specific subset of
# entries.
# NOTE: base_dir may need to be adjusted to the correct Journal_dayone location

python3 email robot to be run periodically
#! /usr/bin/env python3
# is an email robot
# It connects to an IMAP mail server, looks at all of the messages,
# picks out the ones that have just a U or u in the Subject: header,
# scans them for all of the image attachments, saves them to a
# web-server accessible uploads folder, and replies to the message
# through the SMTP server with the URL(s) of the uploaded photos.
# The images are renamed to a UUID. Any message that got a reply is
# then deleted from the IMAP server.
#! /usr/bin/env python2
# Goes through the Transmission resume/ directory and changes the destinations
# of the transfers from the old_location to the new_location. This assumes that
# the transfer directories have been mirrored perfectly from the old_location
# to the new_location. TransmissionBT must not be running while this script is
# executed. More information about the resume files can be found at
# . Uses the bencode library
# available on pypi.
