Homegrown Software

Techn0manc3r has a nice little fortuneteller script that pops up a fortune onto your X11 desktop. The script uses Tcl/Tk, in particular the wish program, which Fedora supplies in the Tk RPM package.

He also has a Wallpaper Setter for changing backgrounds. This inspired me to post one I've written, setbg, a small Perl script that allows you to randomly change the wallpaper at random times. I wrote up a general software page for this, hopefully I'll add some more stuff in the future.
