Some lightning started striking outside so I came inside to play.. on
the laptop. Got to thinking on it. "Cron job" kept coming to mind
before so I searched on it. Feedback I'm getting is that's about
"timed" jobs being set up.

In starting a new search, the search engine's autocomplete related to
"how do i"/"activity based job" suggested "incron" so I took the bait.
Kind of sounds promising but I'm *cognitively* not digesting it well
enough to suggest something to try right now:


I downloaded it and it was TINY, something like only 67KB when its
dependencies are already in place. Maybe someone else already has
experience with it and can help with personally garnered do's or
don'ts? Or maybe has a "no, not quite that but maybe try this"?

Good luck!
