Trying to write a cron job that executes a script for one week prior to the third Thursday of the month. I want to be able to post our Amateur Radio Club Meeting one week before the third Thursday out over an APRS (Automatic Position Radio System) Radio. I'm using MEPHIS (Debian) Distro. I've seen several scripts on the net but so far none of them work correctly. This is probably better done as a Perl script but my knowledge of Perl is extremely limited.
Also want one to execute for one week prior to the last Saturday in June. I'm guess though that the second script can be derived out of the first one.
