I like anacron for doing the periodic tasks. I don't need to leave my machine running at any particular time of day. Anacron (when configured) checks to see if they've been done within the last day, week, or month as appropriate, and does them if needed.

    Yes, it gave me the little push I had been waiting for to install it on my system. I made a pre-patched package of it with a big help from fink's patches:
    tar zxf anacron-darwin.tgz
    cd anacron-2.3
    sudo make install

    But BEWARE - this will overwrite your current crontab
