Response to: maintenance script vs macjanitor

MacJanitor simply puts a front end on these tasks, allowing you to press a button for 'Daily', 'Weekly' or 'Monthly'. However, under Mac OS 10.2 (Jaguar) you can acheive exactly the same by typing the following into the terminal:
sudo periodic daily
(or - instead of 'daily' - 'weekly', or 'monthly'); or run them all at once by typing:
sudo periodic daily weekly monthly
but the tutorial allows all this to occur automatically. You don't really need MacJanitior.
