I wanted to keep some programs running, which is to say restart them if they crashed, but I also wanted them to be able to exit normally. The platform is Linux, the problem is compiz, the solution is a very small shell script. Surely the internets will let me know if there is something grossly wrong with it. This script is not meant for long-running daemons, there are plenty of tools for that already.

Random Drinking Game
Ok, folks, here it is: the semi-official 1993 Beverly Hills, 90210 drinking game. IMHO, you'd have to be not sober to watch it anyway, but's that's JMO, right? :-) One word of warning: if you play this game as described, you will possibly wind up with alcohol poisoning. If you play this game using something non-alcoholic, your bladder will probably explode by the first commercial break.
