- Bloody hell, that's short. Maybe Hugo's onto someth...
- Hang on, that's an interesting problem.
This is certainly reflective of my personal interests but scripting and programming is my $DAYJOB and silly little problems like this are the sort of nonsense that hold things up. Having it asked, and answered makes the internet better. Removing it doesn't.
In terms of quality, it is short, but not too short., Note again that this is something that I do professionally, but I understood the question, the potential need for the question (without any requirement for explanation or whatever "research" looks like), and I understood that the answer needn't be constrained by anything other than running under Bash, on Ubuntu.
They just want to keep a log of how many times their script was run.
I'm even tempted to add an answer now.
But I'm a geek. I think we have to accept that not all questions are going to be suitable or appeal to every audience. Sorry, I think the audit was right.
By extension, don't worry that you failed an audit. The review system is designed to balance the response to borderline questions just like this, in a way that raw close votes just don't handle well.
