Notify yourself periodically using Growl

What do you mean crontab is locked down tight?

crontab -e

works for me. If you have any trouble, be sure to set:

setenv EDITOR vi

I've got a bunch of crontab entries. Using an Airport Express and Airfoil, I have the computer wake me up to music. On the hour I get and play the latest CNN podcast, announce the time and weather (again using AEs throughout the house). The fun just never stops with cron.
