Do these need to run as root?  And do they really need to wait for a user to log 
in or can they write their output to a file to be viewed later?  You can put a 
line in /etc/rc.d/rc.local to run your script which you can change each time as 
you want.  And you can add >>/path/to/logfile on the command if you want it to 
be saved.   If you want something to run as the user at login, it can go in 
.profile or .bash_profile in the user's home directory.
