    Is this possible? I need automator to run this set of commands:

    dscacheutil -flushcache
    sudo sysctl -w net.inet.tcp.rfc1323=0
    sudo sysctl -w net.inet.tcp.recvspace=32768
    sudo sysctl -w net.inet.tcp.sendspace=32768
    sudo sysctl -w net.inet.tcp.win_scale_factor=1
    sudo sysctl -w net.inet.tcp.sockthreshold=0

    Every 6 hours or so. It is for playing WoW, if I dont do that like once every other day or so, WoW will just kill the connection every time I log in, and this fixes it. It would be nice to not have to worry about it.

    I've never used automator before so idk if this is even possible..
