I have a bash script to sort files into "month" folders (I think I broke it now but it used to work)
The problem is that I always forget to run it. Is there a way that I can auto-fill the numbers for the month and the year and get cron to run it on a monthly or weekly bases?
#  mkdir /var/spool/asterisk/monitor/old-2010-08/
find . -maxdepth 1 -type f -name "*201008*" | while read fname
    mv $fname  /var/spool/asterisk/monitor/old-2010-08/
