This is a script I wrote to grab satan as soon as it is available.
The hack here is the little bit of awk to resubmit the at job.
I have no cron access here.

Someone over my shoulder just pointed out that I don't check that
satan.tar.gz exists. notice, however, that once we get the file, we
stop submitting ourselves.

if [ -f satan.tar.Z ]; then
  uncompress satan.tar.Z
  gzip satan.tar
  mpack -s "Satan Delivery For You" satan.tar.gz
  at `date | sed -e '/:/s// /g' | awk '{ \
  if ( $4+1 > 23) $4 = -1; \
  printf ("%s:%s",$4+1,$5); }'` getsatan
