Most Essential Scripts?

Hi, I’m a couple weeks into using blender and I want to start getting some scripts now that I’ve covered the basics. I also want to teach myself python. What are some of people’s “must-have” scripts? They can be for anything so long as they are useful or cool.

Any help is appreciated, as well as links for the BEST newb tuts for learning python. I have done no scripting or programming outside of flash and a little of aftereffects expressions language .(basically JAVA) so I need baby steps. Never thought I’d curse myself for opting out of the math track.

/But then, of course, I wouldn’t be such a consummate artiste :smiley:

This pretty much depends on what you use blender for-

I tried to set up a cookbook for bite sized examples everyone contributed to…
