    To show off on the internet?

    Automation is something I don't need any monitors for.

    Yeah I'd like to see you have macros running posting ads and keep track of 20 servers on one screen. At a quick glance look over and see if any had messed up instead of cycling through a kvm.

    I'd write scripts to track performance and generate reports for me. Then SMS on failure if need be.

    I personally don't feel the need to justify having hundreds of monitors for something that can be done with one.

    definitely saves me a TON of time. I don't even check the logs/reports anymore. It just runs.

    So what are some tools you all use? I automate certain things with API's to various sites. but the middle work i am still doing on these new sites. I have VA's i outsource work to but that is expensive after ahwhile. I could use imacros if it were simple easy stuff but it isnt.

    What are you all using to automate certain things?

    I wrote a program that scrapes my competitors websites, grabs their prices, compares it with my prices, and adjusts my price based on the target profit I have set.

    so to answer your question, my own program written in perl running on linux.

    very cool, a new site a acquired has like 6-7 scripts that were hand written to semi automate things. Problem is i have not figured them out but i want to get a UI made for them so they are even further hands off. Would help if i could write code and not just read it.
