An actual update

Hmm, I haven’t posted here in quite a while. Oh well.

I was working on a utility a couple days ago to help me verify the checksums of a large set of files to help prevent against bit rot. Basically, it is a beefed up version of md5sum which can operate on an entire directory tree and update the checksum database somewhat intelligently.

Perhaps someone will find it useful – I decided to post it on github.
