because I sure can’t. In Panther, I used cron to automate backups, but Tiger’s launchd has me stymied. I have a working applescript that backs my hard drive up, but I just have to get it to launch every day at 9 PM. I’ve fiddled with the XML plist files, and I downloaded somebody helpful’s “launchd editor,” but nothing seems to work. My current strategy revolves around using osascript to run the applescript, but it duddin’ work. Here’s my plist:<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> Label com.zanzibar.dailybackup OnDemand Program /usr/bin/osascript ProgramArguments /usr/bin/osascript ~/Documents/Applescript\ stuff/Automated\ backup\ attempts/Usable/Daily\ Backup.scpt RunAtLoad ServiceDescription Backs up Zanzibar to Mombasa using osascript to run Daily backup.app StartCalendarInterval Hour 21 Minute 0
I have this plist in ~/Library/LaunchAgents, and I loaded it with launchctl. Still nothing. Any help would be hujongously appreciated. Orr, if anyone could point me in the direction of anyone/anywhere else that might be of help, that’d be good, too.
