bash - enhanced burn

Since we are dealing more with usb devices, the good old optical burning is not used that often. I created a simple function with an alias of "burn" to write a iso file as quick as possible to my optical storage device.

function net_bazzline_burn ()
{
  if [[ $# -lt 1 ]]; then
    echo 'No valid argument supplied.'
    echo 'Try net_bazzline_burn $isoFile [$opticalDevice]'

    exit 1
  fi

  if [[ $# -eq 1 ]]; then
    sudo wodim -v dev=/dev/cdrom "$1"
  else
    sudo wodim -v dev=/dev/"$2" "$1"
  fi
}

This is available to my shell function on github.com.
