Control with iCal
Authored by: Anonymous on Oct 12, '04 02:05:28AM

You can control the start and stop with iCal if you want.

What to do

- In the Script Editor save the start script as an Application bundle and do the same for the stop script.
- Open up iCal and make a new event change the 'from' property to the date and time you want to record.
- Change the 'alarm' property to 'Open File' then select your previously saved start script. And have it start 1 minute before event start time.
- Now you will have to make a separate event as above for the stop script.
- If you have the iCalAlarmScheduler in your Startup Items you don't even need to have iCal open for this to work.

Great suggestion

Your idea has the added benefit of being able to label each start and stop event with the program name being recorded.
