A good night's sleep?

Thu, 02 May 2013 11:28:00 +0000

After moving to Australia, one thing I have noticed is most of my emails still tend to come through Boston time.

I still want the email, just not being told at 2am (noon Boston time). So, to counter this, I have added this cron job to my iMac:

    Ians-iMac:~ ianconnor$ crontab -l
    0 22 * * * /usr/bin/osascript -e "set Volume 0"

This will ensure that my volume is off every night at 10pm. I am hoping this will ensure my iMac doesn't wake me up at night with random noises.
