Fun with xkcd, bash, Imagemgick and GNOME

A script (xkcdannotated) which takes an xkcd comic then annotates it with the title and alt text like so:

xkcd.com - Silent Hammer

Invoked with no arguments uses the most recent comic, can also be told to use a specific comic or to use a random comic. Tested on Linux and Mac OS X.

A script (xkcdwallpaper)which calls xkcdannotated then sets the result as your GNOME wallpaper. Arguments as per xkcdannotated. Can also be told to overlay the comic on top of another image and set the result as the wallpaper.
