Google Forms Script Help

I work at a school, and I'm trying to create a Google form to help get information out to parents. We have MULTIPLE means of doing that, though, and the problem is that EACH of the communication modes is handled by someone different. For example, one person is in charge of the website, another is in charge of the electronic sign out front, while another takes care of making afternoon announcements. I've created a form that allows teachers to 1. Type the verbiage they'd like to share, and 2. choose from a list of available media (website, sign, etc.). I'm not smart enough to do the next step. Ideally, I'd like Google Docs to automatically send an e-mail to the appropriate person with the verbiage from each submission. [more inside]

Script or hack to show PDF from /YYYY/MM/DD/*.pdf URL?

I just noticed that the NYT offers a PDF version of its print front page, which I'd like to be able to access without going through the extra clicks on the website. The file always has the same name as is located in a simple nested date format — but I have no idea how to script something to replace that every day in a new tab or add it to Rainmeter or the like. Any suggestions? [more inside]

How can I write a script so that it's cheap to make?

For those who have made movies, I have heard that the cheaper you can write a movie (This is of course presuming your script is already awesome!) the greater your chances are of having it bought. I am more than happy to work creatively within such constraints, but I was wondering if there were scenes that counterintuitively cost a lot that a first-time writer wouldn't know about, and vice versa.

An app to order random crap?

A couple of years ago, I read about a guy who wrote a script that would randomly order items that cost $1, so he'd get a bunch of cheap, unexpected stuff from all over. I think it was for ebay auctions, but maybe it was amazon. Does anyone remember this or know where his page was? And if you don't, does anyone know of something similar to that (automatically ordering random cheap stuff)?

How do I get LAUNCHD to output random filenames?

Hi all, I'm trying to create a time lapse of a lego build using 'imagesnap' and 'LAUNCHD' on the mac, but I can't get my script to output a timestamped image or random filenames.

How to passively track outbound clicks

I've used MyBlogLog.com's statisitcs service for years to track outbound clicks on my sites, but now Yahoo is killing the service.

Best Free File Sharing Script?

Four years ago, Aaorn asked after "free software that will let me set up a document dropbox on my web server. Basically I want to upload files and then have them be available -- through a nice-looking interface -- to users of my choosing." TooManyGadgets recently posted a question that brought DropBox to my attention, and after littleme was kind enough to share a DropBox beta invite, I wanted to revisit the original question. Obviously, there are lots of free scripts that offer the ability to do server-based file-sharing, but which is the best (security + ease of use, with free preferred but not necessary)? [more inside]
