iDo that too

While yours is a clever solution, I personally prefer to use this little app (shareware, $25) to pass parameters to my scheduled scripts.

iDo that too
Authored by: leenoble_uk on Sep 19, '05 01:32:03PM

I used to use iDo on OS9. I waited a couple of years I'm sure after upgrading to X for it to be converted but eventually gave up checking. Since rolling my own solution last Friday I've been pointed towards Script Timer too. I've read many postings on various sites and mailing lists asking why their scripts stop working when run from the cron and I've yet to see anyone offer a solution. I'll be sticking with my solution though. It is completely free after all.
