With the exception of Ruby, I use Python, Tcl/Tk and Perl quite a bit, but most of my cronjobs are simple bash scripts.
Good to know, now I don't have to feel bad about learning Python instead of bash for the time being. Python seems to be the easier to learn of the two languages so I'll stick with it for a while.

Well, you can't win them all!

Good luck with that.
