OK, in that vein I wouldn't mind seeing a presentation on bash shell 
programming for recovering DOS batch file writers. There are all kinds 
of things I  used to do, so I know they're possible, but I lack the 
syntax to do it well in Linux.  Yes, I could RTFM, but it's so much 
nicer with a presentation buddy.
