If you want to use it as a private script which is only accessible to you 
and not to other users, put it in "$HOME/bin". Furthermore, if you make 
it executable with "chmod +w $HOME/bin/scriptname" you don't need the sh 
command. If you want to make it available for all users of the machine, 
put it in "/usr/local/bin".

That would be something like "UUID_drives.$(date '+%y%m%d_%H%M%S')". 
See "man date" for other formats.
