Lingon - Use a GUI to create recurring events
Authored by: Dr. T on Apr 21, '08 10:55:34AM

What is the advantage to using Lingon versus scheduling events with Automator/AppleScript and iCal? For system-related timed or repeated tasks, I just log onto my admin account (to keep those tasks off my regular calendar) and set up the events in iCal.

launchd (like cron) doesn't require a user to be logged on in order for tasks to be run.
