A 'Go to work!' reminder script
Authored by: encro on Mar 14, '04 10:41:15AM
To open up your crontab type:
crontab -e
and insert the following text:

#minute   hour   mday   month   wday   command
 55       11     *      *       *      osascript -e 'say "Time to go to work"'

You can replace the osascript command with ~/yourscriptname if you like.

Cheers

A 'Go to work!' reminder script

Ammendment after a quick test in the terminal:
say "Time to go to work"
executes much quicker than the applescript interpreter using:
osascript -e 'say "Time to go to work"'
