comment Why is the google PPA reenabled after an upgrade to a new release?
I just noticed that something went wrong with this process in the last month and the Google distro was unauthorized and for some reason hasn't reauthorized itself. I'm hoping manually reinstalling the package will reset things.

comment How do I import Amazon MP3s with Banshee and the new Amazon Cloud Player?
Good point, I had forgotten to mention that you can still download the files one by one. I usually buy music a couple albums at a time though, so downloading each song individually would take forever. In regards to your original commentary, I should point out that when I called them they were pretty responsive to my concerns and said they would pass them along to the developers and get back to me.

I got a preliminary email back from a customer service rep. saying that he would need 1-2 business days to look into the matter. Already a much better response than I've gotten from certain other companies, who see the word "linux" and take it as an excuse to stop providing customer service regardless of what the problem is.

Ah, so a false alarm indeed. I dug around a little upstream but I was looking for the wrong thing and missed the renaming bit. Thanks!

comment How to organize periodic maintenance tasks?
I'm a little confused. If you don't want them scheduled but also don't want to call them manually, then what exactly are you hoping to be able to do? Is your question just about how to write a shell script that will call them all at once so that you can run them whenever you have time? Or are you hoping for a program that would manage such a script for you?

ah, gotcha. well you could always throw a launcher on your desktop or wherever, (or put a symlink in /usr/bin if you are more of the CLI type) linking to your scripts in their respective cron directories. Thne whenever you have time you could click the launcher or run the symlinked command.
