using pianobar and utilizing a reboot delay and screens, I was running a headless pandora that was shutting off by itself. Pretty nice.
I used two screens (typing screen bash) one running pianobar and the other running the command:
sudo shutdown -r 22:15
It's the next day and I've been trying to connect and this is what I'm getting:
~$ ssh pi@192...
The system is going down on Fri Jun 28 22:15:51 2013
As you see, it's unlikely the date will be June 28 2013 again for awhile as it's Jun 29 2013 for me... I don't have any feasible way of connecting it with a monitor and usb keyboard (I have neither) and I'd rather not lose the scripts I wrote into it which I conveniently forgot to backup.
I recovered the scripts and grabbed my samba config file which is great! Before I dd the sd card (again) is there anyway I can cancel the shutdown by modifying a file on the card? I ran:
grep -r "22:15" /path/to/sd/card
which didn't get me especially far. the 22:15 is the time to shutdown.
