In many cases, problems can be solved, or at least worked around, by making a small script. I am very well aware of the fact that this site is not a script-factory and people should not expect other users to write scripts for them. On the other hand, I simply like being creative in writing small solutions where it can be done easily.
This is something I have been asking myself for some time now. Especially a downvote of this answer made me wonder if such "behaviour" is unwanted, since I cannot think of another reason; I tested it completely and it works fine as far as I can see.
What is the general idea about writing small scripts, not because people should expect it, but simply because you like it?
