some cool crontab scripts


what's up,

i wanted to see if any one had any good crontab scripts. I only have a few backup scripts and a slocate script that run, but that is it. I want to run crontab scripts more often, because i think they are the coolest thing. Its like having a maid around to clean your house when you are sleeping. IF anyone has any good scripts/ideas to run with crond please let me know.

thanks,

djgerbavor3

Install logwatch, configure it, and put it in /etc/cron.daily. Then it will email you every day with lots of statistics about your computer.
