What does that have to do with "Experiences with LVM vs btrfs" which was 
the subject of the thread you have replied to? it is better to start a 
new thread if you want to discuss a new subject.

I'm not familiar with upstart jobs, but IIRC they are used for system 
jobs only. Then the use of "~/" or "$HOME/" doesn't make much sense. I 
would always use the full path, which would be "/root/" instead of "~/". 
Furthermore I wonder if $HOME is set at all for upstart jobs ...
