New Site - Why am I doing this?

I realized that I automate or script something that I do at least 4 or 5 times a week. I run into mundane or repetive tasks all that time and I think I am allergic to repetitive tasks. I get a bad case of the sleepies.


It is time to write a script as soon as you find yourself doing something 2 or 3 times in a row. We will spend a lot of time looking into this.

Needless to say, there are better things to do in life than to:

  • copy and paste something into every line of a file
  • manually Download every image in a file
  • repeatedly refresh a webpage watching for something to change (think prices)
  • cut a huge CSV file (think gigabytes) into smaller pieces so that Excel can actually load it
  • make changes to a site that has an API

I will share tips and tricks, lessons, occasional videos, and lots and lots of code snippets.

Now, get scripting!
