dCron has come on quite well over the weekend. You can now specify weekdays, dates and months to run programs in. The app also supports named days and months as well as ranges, for example “mon-fri” and “oct-may”. Seems to be near a release. I’m going to leave it running quietly this week to see what happens, whether it silently does it’s job or wakes me up at 4am one day rather than 7am =)

As an idea, here’s the syntax it uses:

That executes a given command at 7am on the 15th January or June, if it is a weekday.

I don’t know if anyone will find it useful besides me. However, as long as I find it useful and have learnt something from coding it, I’ll consider it worthwhile.
