Automate installs, plugin downloads and website logins

Hello,

I'm traveling for a year and each time i visit an internet cafe to update my web blog there are several applications i need to install e.g. Firefox and Editplus plus a number of plugins for the browser like fireftp, cooliris, firebug. In addition i also need to login to several websites for email, ftp etc.

How can this (sometimes very time consuming and) repetitive setup be automated?

Is it possible to write a script that does it, is there a particular scripting language for this sort of thing or is there an app already available that will help me to do this?

Many thanks

p.s. if i have placed this in the wrong forum, feel free to move it.
