yeah, I have a perl script that queries a remote server for the
outside temperature, queries the local machine for the CPU and m/b
temperatures, does some logic, and turns on or off 2 fans attached to
the parallel port using solid state relays. one is a desk fan to
cool ME, the other an extractor in the window to cool the room.
I also use various bash and AWK scripts to grab disk quota usage per
user, and printer log statistics, and ntpd time offset and probably
other esoteric things I can't recall right now.
MRTG can do *anything* (-:
