Use launchd to schedule repeating tasks

A good article, but it completely skips over LaunchDaemons, which are critical for anything you want capable of running automatically. In a nutshell, LaunchDaemons are run by the system at startup (not login, like LaunchAgents) and so will always be running regardless of whether someone is logged in or not.
