So I shouldn't use cron to execute a mp3? I was searching for a task scheduler and just came across it and thought that it might work out but I guess not. What is mymp3? What should I use in my case?

[hint]don't use NCurses or framebuffer based ones either[/hint]

Here's my personal recommendation ...
