As winter darks arrive at 4pm hereabouts, either timed lights or lights simply left burning all day are a necessity. Having found an old-style light timer at a nearby estate sale this summer, I have begun to wonder about what else might be timed. Ideally, I’d like to open the door to the 4:25pm bumper theme leading into the half-hour-end segment on All Things Considered.

On realizing that I have a disused old-style iBook acting primarily as streaming input to my living room stereo and recalling that the dim mists of history inform me that iTunes us schedulable, I googled this script-board exchange from August, 2003 – five years ago.

I have no recollection of it. I still refuse to employ spellckekc. I’ll circle back, it seems.
