By merging both scripts.
You've generated and executable from so it's no more possible to source it in the current environment.

Old 09-06-2011 is an executable file, not shell script anymore. You cannot source (.) it like you cannot source /bin/cat or something else. You can use stdin/stdout to get information from your source shell script or some other techniques like tempfile, named pipes, sockets, etc.
