I don't currently use #!, but I am certainly impressed by the lightweight software that's being developed by some of the users here. I'll try to help out as much as I can with this, so you'll mostly see me hanging around in the tips, tricks, and scripts section. And hello #! community!
For my sins I'm currently administering a Windows Server (standard edition) box for a company. They have several python and PHP scripts set up on this box that run as scheduled tasks. Sometime over the past few weeks these scripts stopped working.
I have 2 pairs of python scripts that run 24/7. 2 of them perform data insertions, 2 of them perform analysis. What happens is when I look at the connections in MySQL Workbench the 2 performing the insertions have time counters that never get reset to zero. The scripts performing the analysis are always on.

I'm just learning to write shell scripts (new to the whole UNIX thing) and I'm wondering if anyone knows of / would like to help me create a "100 interesting shell scripting problems" template to help me, and others like me, to learn scripting.
