Hi Mike -

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, you really don't 
want to use
the GIMP for this task.  It's ever so much easier with 
ImageMagick.  Try something like this:

for image in *.jpg
convert -quality 50 $image loqual_$image

Read man convert for all the details.

There may be cases where it makes sense to use the GIMP in batch 
mode, but they are few and far between, and I don't think you 
have one of them here.
