Challenge: Solve one 1 simple problem per day for 5 consecutive weekdays.
Day One - Encrypted Notes - add/update/delete notes from an encrypted text file interactively.*
Day Two - Stock Quote - Retrieve stock quotes from Yahoo Finance. (Requires: hexdump, xsltproc, and wget)
Day Three - What Is - Simplistic (and probably really buggy) command line Wikipedia lookup tool.
Day Four - ConvCurrency - Quick and Dirty currency converter.
Day Five - corner-cut - Simple ImageMagick script to slice uniform corners out of an image. Nothing fancy, but possibly useful in the future.
