Thank you all very much for putting this together

I'm currently struggling to find any documentation that lists the different arguments SBFspot takes and their functions e.g -v -nocsv -finq etc... ?

Also I thought it would be worth mentioning that I have just worked out after some time that the upload daemon does not run SBFspot at intervals and that this must instead be scheduled manually, something which is not made clear in the documentation

Thanks again!
