Check Page Updates
Program to check for website updates and popup a gtk window
I used a bash shell script which in turn passes a string to a gtk app upon updates

Gtk Popup

Set it up as a cron job
crontab -e
0 * * * * /home/users/up_check_script

Misc scripts->mp3/wav/etc.
Downsample mp3s to 64kbits for say a rio
Mp3 renamer, strip spaces and nonsense
Convert a cd of mp3s to wav for burning
Split a mix into 5min tracks as wavs
Split a mix into 5min tracks as mp3s

For some of the wav manipuldation you need a program called "wavcut"

Resize those darn photocd .jpgs
