Full Specifications

What's new in version 1.5
  • Removed the seriously outdated PlaySound code because it was asynchronous and too buggy under OS 9.x. Sounds are now managed by launching sound files instead. Also, enhanced the random cron so that users may "tune" how often a random item (usually a sound file) will be launched. Fixed a bug that forced DaemonCron to play ALL the random crons, instead of selecting one at random. Removed redundant quarter-hour crons; ripped out to emphasize the new sound regime -- sorry, no more built-in cuckoos. If Apple ever debugs the Sound Manager for OS 9, this may reappear in the Carbonized/OS X version. Also added two new AppleScripts -- one to clean out the Startup Items folder on shutdown (all but DemonCron's alias, that is ;-), and one to flush internet caches (especially MRJ Cache) on Mondays.
    Note: Version 1.5 runs ok in the OS X Classic environment, however...! OS X delegates sound file playing to iTunes, which does not keep to the background. Also note that Classic environment launches the regular OS 9.1 Startup Items, so DaemonCron fires up as usual whenever Classic starts. These are third-party "features," not bugs ;-)
