Subject: Snapshots of MEDM screens 
I wrote scripts to take snapshots of MEDM screens in the background.
These scripts work even on a computer without a physical display attached.
You don't need to have X running.
So now the scripts run on nodus every 5 minutes from cron.
The screen shots are saved in /cvs/cds/caltech/statScreen/images/

There is a wiki page for the scripts.
http://lhocds.ligo-wa.caltech.edu:8000/40m/captureScreen.sh

Someone has to make a nice web page summarizing the captured images.
