OS X and scheduled tasks

This hint works fine in Panther, not that it should be any surprise given that this is straight up UNIX.

locate is not just for beginners either. I've been using UNIX on and off for ten years or so, and I still find uses for locate.

Even more importantly, the awesome wgetCocoa needs an updated locate db if you just recently (re)added wget to your system.

Thanks for the great hint - still useful after three years!

I had to use sudo to get the commands to work - I got a permission denied error without using sudo.

Neat hint though
