The reason I do it like that is because sudo doesn't really let me do
redirection (at least I can't figure it out).  su lets me define a
command with redirection (in the -c " " block).  sudo lets me define the
password once and then it will remember the authentication for the rest
of the script (useful since there are more than 1 file that will be
changed)

I didn't really work that hard on the scripts. Maybe 10 min.
