    I'm looking for a way to be able to switch out the skipuser file for cpbackup script.
    That way I will have weekly backup on every account!

    I will be nice to the server and the load will be low or atleast not last long.
    So I can backup on monday 30 accounts, tuesday another 30 acccunts etc etc.

    Today I use 2 cpbackup scripts with diff. skipuser files but it would be easier to
    setup everything if I just could change the skipuser file with cron.

    Om tuesday I will have cronjob before backup cron:
    replace "skipuserMonday" with "skipuserTuesday"

    and so on...

    Any idea on this or a little code maybe :)
