Yesterday, I got tired of not having a simple way of seeing an agenda for the upcoming days of all my calendars. Between work using hosted Exchange, using a joint iCloud calendar, and still using Google Calendar quite often, getting all of the information in one place is a pain.
A commenter recently asked if I could publish the script that I wrote to handle monitoring master-master replication. It's been almost two years since I wrote the code, and I no longer have access to the original, but I've reproduced the general code here.
I created sql2xls.pl initially about 6 months ago, because I was tired of trying to remember to MySQL's SELECT … INTO syntax. Plus, then I'd have to download the CSV, format it in a method that MS Office could use, and then email the data.
