I have done a "getman" script, that shows a manpage on gedit. Have you made something?

Yeah, I have a self-use program called "hand". I use it to release some stress when my girlfriends gets a virus called "headache". It really sucks. I really, really, hate that virus.

All the time. Shell scripts mostly.It's one of the things I like most about Linux. Usually, they are to batch process repetitive tasks. I've also made a script to help me cheat on the "change one letter game" - http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=650916

I have a script to download and display my grades. It helps me stay up to date on my schoolwork.

I set up my own web-based Java IDE to write and compile Java while using the 450MHz machines at my school (30 seconds to compile hello-world? Count me out, my server does it in 0.2 seconds)
