Wow, Gary! One of the sad things about the Mac these days is it's getting too nerdy. I use Cuckoo to make my Mac bong the hours. I asked the developer if there was a chance he could make it chime as well (like a long case clock) and he said he'd been thinking about this but so far, years later, he's done nothing. I also have the Mac set up to tell me the time every half hour, along with one bong from Cuckoo. But I'd like something for the quarter hours too so I might try this. Thanks for this.
LOVE it, I felt like flashback to an old Unix class y e a r s ago, but those were still happy memories. I will try this 'just because it sounds fun' ;) thnx
Not being a programmer, before I try this I wonder how one would cancel the programmed custom chime if you didn't want it anymore?
Bruce: Just remove that line from the crontab file.
