    Question Scheduled Tasks?
    Ill tell you want im trying to do.

    I have cool app that gives me free online storage called Dropbox. It simply puts a folder in your home directory, called Dropbox. Anything placed in the Dropbox folder is backed up online. Then if my mac goes down, i still have my important docs backed up without buying a backup hard drive. It is also useful when I forget my memory stick for college, I can just sign in on the dropbox website, and my files are there. Any changes are automatically updated to my dropbox folder, when I next turn on my mac.

    What I am wanting to do is, on boot-up or shutdown, is have my mac automatically copy my Documents folder into my dropbox folder and over-write everything in there. This was possible in Windows 98, (my last m$-os) and in Ubuntu (what I had in-between win98 and getting my mac) because they had a scheduled tasks feature or program.

    Is it possible in os x?

    I don't have a solution.... but I question your trust in online storage, esp since you mention that these are important docs!
    Not knocking you, just curious :/

    do you know microsoft's live skydrive thing that you get when you get when you get a new hotmail account? its like that, but it actually works and is much more easier to use. Its secure... as in you require a password and its got 128 bit encryption. If anyone REALLY wants to hack in to get a load of my demo projects and bands early before i manage to get a record deal... feel free.
