Looks good!  I "accepted" your revisions.  I also
took the liberty of putting in a hyperlink and
swapping over the "w/" to "with".

By the way, did you consider using GNU parallel:

GNU parallel requires Perl and will probably need
to be downloaded and installed:

  $ tar -xjf parallel-20111022.tar.bz2
  $ cd parallel-20111022/
  $ ./configure && make
  $ sudo make install

This has some drawbacks and assumes an internet
connection.  On the other hand, Awk is universal.
Notwithstanding, I found GNU parallel great to use.

All in the one subdirectory I hope.  :)
