I don't know what timezone you are in but this is going to loop for ever:

Code:
      until [[ "$DATE" == "$TDATE" ]]; do
            sleep 1800
        done


BTW. Many thanks for posting the current version of the script. May people forget to do that.

Son of a gun...you know what...you're right. And the weird thing is, as soon as I looked at it again just now, it's obvious that you're right.

Well I just feel silly. Kudos.
