Well, I have created a variety of scripts in bash and bourne.. Some to
download the current weather satellite images from the national archives and
display them, to monitor my network and tell me (via audio) if a computer is
running or not, quickie scripts to take over network services like web
hosting on another computer if my server goes down (uses IP Aliasing *neat*),
menu's, and the like. It really depends upon what you're interests are.
