What would you like to do? pause/resume tricks for Dropbox and Backblaze (ideal for Podcast-related Bunches)
# Tricks for
# <>
# Normally we would quit Dropbox just by using:
# !Dropbox
# But Dropbox has some issues with an AppleScript-style quit
# so we revert to sending a KILL signal via shell script
$ killall Dropbox
# if you want to open the Dropbox process when toggling
# the bunch back off
!$ open -a Dropbox
# If you want to pause Backblaze (by default for 2 hours)
$ /Library/Backblaze.bzpkg/bztransmit -pausebackup
# Resume Backblaze syncing on quit
!$ /Library/Backblaze.bzpkg/bztransmit -completesync
