Is there perhaps an easier way (for sure there must be) for those that are motivationally challenged and to quote the canonical IT cliche -- "let's not reinvent the wheel folks." If not, then - sigh - yes, yes, perhaps I will write something. Though my langue de choix is 'perl' because it is so friggin' simple in form and expression. Actually maybe you got ruby and python up in there as other good, minimalist languages... Ah, but then you got all those functional programming languages and those are pretty neat-o. But I digress and I forgot what of all this was. Ah yes, I'd love to find a feature-rich simple script/app that does all this stuff so that I don't have to. I have all these other little pet projects that I'm working on and my mind cannot deal with these constant diversions!
