Incremental Backup 1.1
TimeMachine on Leopard is great. Unless you're running on Tiger. Or unless you have two drives that you want to swap out for rotating backups sets. This script will allow you to set up incremental backups from any source, to any destination. Be sure to read the Read Me for how to configure the script.

Works great with an external hard drive with hot-swap trays,

SnopesClip
Have anyone in your Address Book who keeps sending you loads of those mass-forwarded emails that may be hoaxes but every once in a while they're true? Check 'em with Snopes. Copy a key word or short phrase (i.e. "Klingerman Virus") from the email then run this script. It will pop open a new browser window (or tab) in your default browser and automatically search Snopes for whatever text is on the clipboard.

WikiClip
If you use Wikipedia to look stuff up on a regular basis, you'll love this. Select and copy the text you want to search for in any email, web page, Word document, et cetera, then run this script. It'll open a new browser window (or tab) in your default browser and automatically search Wikipedia for whatever text is on the clipboard. For best results, limit your selection to 1 or 2 words. Bonus points: use something like Quicksilver to assign it to a keyboard shortcut.
