Useful Scripts Page

I take no responsibility for the use or misuse of these scripts, by downloading them YOU take that responsibility. You can, of course, examine the (usually dodgy) source code for yourself :) and in the extremely likely event that the script is broken, I would be obliged if you could fix it and let me know what you did :)
