    The easiest way is to make an ical event with an alarm that run's an applescript. And then just make the applescript launch the app.

    The other way is more complicated and involves creating launchd entries (perhaps using a program like Lingon).

    Help with cronnix

    Hi all!
    I'm having some problem using cronnix.
    I create the command I want to execute I give it the time I want it to start.
    But when the time comes nothing happens. Instead if I give "run now" from the commands tab it works.
    Probably i'm doing something stupid could you help me anyway?
    Thanks,
    Lori
