Projects: How I keep myself busy

I believe that the computer cannot and should not take the place of a human being, but should act as a tool. A tool, which can increase the productivity and efficiency of one, by automating tasks, doing them error free, and doing them fast. So doing some labor intensive, repetitive task is a perfect candidate to be done by a computer. Being a programmer by heart, now and then I write small tools and utilities to help me do such tasks. I then share these for the use of everybody. Hope some of these will help you too. Do Let me know if it does or more importantly if you faced any problems using them.

p.s.: If seeing these, you too got an idea to automate some daily computing task, which you want me to attempt, then just drop me a mail. If it's a generic problem enough, I'll love to code it and host it on my site.
