Help MacResearch.org expand its Script Repository and you could win a  
black 2GB iPod Nano. Eligible contestants must submit a research- 
oriented script that can run natively (no emulators) on Mac OS X 10.3  
or higher without modification before the contest end date. Scripts  
for all scientific domains are welcome including scripts written for  
High Performance Computing (grid, cluster, etc) setup and management.  
If your script does not meet the aforementioned criteria then you  
will not be eligible to win the iPod Nano. Winners will be chosen by  
random drawing. The contest begins 2/8/2006 and ends 2/28/2006.  The  
ultimate goal of this contest, and the script repository in general,  
is to create a valuable community resource that can be used to  
benefit endeavors in research and education. Please don't be shy  
about your coding style or lack of documentation. Your script will  
make someone's life easier. To learn more about MacResearch.org and
