    1. Anything that can be automated and is worth investing time into automating because has to be done more than a few times.
    2. Yes. PHP (cURL, phpQuery).
    3. Not really... to broad of a question

    Thanks. I am currently learning Ruby, so I may use this as an exercise to continue to build my knowledge in that. Can I ask what are a few things you automate? I appreciate all your help.
