DaemonCron Lite 1.5
This small daemon posts messages to the screen, and will launch
documents, AppleScripts, sound files, etc., on any schedule you set.
uses include nagging yourself (via Notification Manager alerts or
AppleScripts), launching Netscape at 3 A.M. to drive your cat nuts, whining
soulfully when someone else is using your computer, turning your house
on or off (requires wiring and additional stuff not provided), doing things
startup or shutdown, listening to your ex's dead dog bark every now and
and so forth. Hey, it's daemonic! Use your imagination!
DaemonCron is freeware for private use.
Requires PowerPC and OS 7.5 or better (OS 9.1 recommended). Requires ResEdit
Resorcerer for configuration, and you should be comfortable with
no-holds-barred system spelling bees when you configure launchfile names.
NOTE: Support for 68k machines has been discontinued.
Changes in this version:
1.5 - 6 June 2001 - Removed the seriously outdated PlaySound code because it
was asynchronous and too buggy under OS 9. Sounds are now managed by
sound files instead. Also, enhanced the random cron so that users may "tune"
how often a random item (usually a sound file) will be launched. Fixed a bug
that forced DaemonCron to play ALL the random crons, instead of selecting
