I have already made a few contributions to the Wiki,
and whenever someone comes up with a question that is
already documented, I point them to the wiki. I think
it's a wonderful tool!
I've been a Windows (NT/2000/2003) admin for 9 years
now and have done AIX and Linux for 3 years. Windows
does not have a built-in crond; NT had a CLI scheduler
called 'at' and 2000/2003 has a GUI-based scheduler
aptly named Task Scheduler. It's easy to use,
effective and has already been documented in the wiki.
Contrary to what the author says, it's not an ugly
hack, it's actually the Windows way of doing things.
A MUCH better scheduler is the one that comes bundled
with MS SQL Server, but I understand it's not
available for everybody to use - in fact, even though
it's available at my job (we're mostly an MS shop -
I'm the local open-source pundit and I'm slowly
introducing free software) I'm using Task Scheduler.
