TRON script

Postby vmhs » Mon Jul 07, 2014 7:12 pm

New all in script that I found, and am integrating into my toolbox.

The Announcement: http://www.reddit.com/r/sysadmin/comments/29u4c3/in_honor_the_4th_of_july_i_present_tron_who/

Latest update: http://www.reddit.com/r/sysadmin/comments/2a2ay9/tron_v12_adds_auto_ssd_detect/

BT Sync Key BYQYYECDOJPXYA2ZNUDWDN34O2GJHBM47 - if you use this, make sure DHT is on with the share

I have this integrated into my d711 - it self updates and duplicates a lot of things, however it is fully automated - you boot to safe mode, and run it.

runs for 1-5 hours and reboots.

Just thought I would share.

GREAT FIND! Thanks! :D
If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense.....Who in the world am I? Ah, that's the great puzzle. I'm afraid I can't explain myself, sir. Because I am not myself, you see?

Very interesting. Too bad it's not at all suited for remote work (especially with starting with rkill) and being a sizeable download to include older scanners. Shame it can't download them dynamically or be directed to a local source (NAS/D7II/3PT)

Hi everyone,

I'm the author and principle maintainer of the Tron script. Since v1.2.0 which you linked (we're now on v6.1.2 after 9 months of heavy development), Tron's been added to Github under the open-source MIT license, gained its own subreddit, and undergone significant upgrades.

You can also now run it remotely (TeamViewer, etc) and it has an update checker to let you know if a new release has been posted.

If you use it and get bugs or glitches, or you have ideas to make it better from your experience doing PC cleanup, please post them over on the /r/TronScript sub so everyone can see and chime in. The goal is to make Tron automate ~85% of the tasks you'd normally have to do to clean up a system, and at least half the functionality has been built by people contributing complaints and ideas.

Thanks!

Hi Vocatus,

Have been wanting to send you folks a huge "Kudos!" for TRON, but have been sidetracked to a stunning degree. Please know that I appreciate very much the effort you and many other have put into TRON. I'm still really new to it, but I hope to be getting increasingly familiar with it and regularly using it. By the way, is there a way to monetarily show my appreciation for this terrific tool? (I don't write code so money is the next best thing I can do.)

Thank you.

Hi SE5FBO8ArZ,

Thanks for the kind words, I appreciate it. And I'm glad it's been helpful.

I set up a Bitcoin donation address ( 1LSJ9qDzuHyRx6FfbUmHVSii4sLU3sx2TF ), but other than that I don't really have anything else set up. I should probably get around to it :P

Cheers

Bitcoin, eh? Hmmmm...I've been meaning to get to that...lol. Early on I was enamored with it but I never got the hang of it. Maybe now it's to a point I can better-understand it? (Yeah; I'm old, and new things don't come as easily to me as they used to.)

Let me put that on one of the front burners. I'll make a note to myself to get a donation to you at some point. (Sorry I can't be more specific....)

Thanks again, and, carpe diem!

Welcome aboard, Vocatus. I've been following the sub for a couple of months now -- Tron is fantastic. 'Bout the only thing it needs is a compressed remote option where the executables are downloaded (e.g. wget,7zip) as needed to reduce the filesize of the initial transfer. My bitsync'd TRON folder is 1.17 GB right now ... since I do residential support, that's prohibitive to be sending to anyone that can't just find it on the same network.

Hi Xander, thanks for the feedback!

My general intent for Tron was for a technician to carry around on a thumb drive, not necessarily to send to end-users to run themselves. If you do want to send it to someone though, you can just have them download the self-extracting .exe from one of the mirrors in this list.

Also, your BT Sync folder is much larger than it should be. Maybe check the archive folder? Looking at the Sync server on my end, the Tron folder is only 611 MB total, and that's uncompressed.
