These are significantly less polished scripts that I've written for myself and weren't specifically meant to be released. They're not necessarily as robust, clean, functional, or well-commented as the programs listed above. However, I personally use them quite a bit, and wanted to share them with everyone else that may be able to benefit from them. Unless otherwise stated, all scripts below are available under the GNU General Public License.
Since only a short description of each script is presented here, please be sure to check out the source code before running any of these scripts. Pay attention in particular to any comments at the top of the script and/or the "Setup Environment" section, which often contains variables that may need to be adjusted for your specific system. For assistance with any of these scripts, please visit the forum.
