Response to: anacron?

Okay, I kinda munged the original question (and nobody's responding) so let me rephrase:

Rather than try to guess at a specific time when your machine is likely to be running, so that your cron jobs get run, there's a more robust alternative: anacron ( will make sure jobs get run at some point during the day. It's standard-issue for laptop users, of which Mac OS X has many. A quick search on both Google and Apple Support turned up only one stray comment in a review.
