DothisnowI have been using different methods of tackling schedule events in Linux for sometimes now. Most common among them, is using Cron. But “At” works well, too. Despite the power behind each method from the CLI, newbies are hopeful that there is an easier way, perhaps like what they used to use in the Windows world.

As it turns out, Bryan Lunduke has a solution this not only easy, but cheap as well. And if you are needing to have specific actions happen at set times of the day, then DoThisNow is one really great way to do with without a lot of extra configuration.

Is this going to be a replacement for the free methods previously mentioned? No, it is not ment to be. And yes, the work behind this software has a price tag. If it is something you need from it, I consider it to be quite reasonable.
