I would also recommend you Cron. Once I used XCron and my system crashed
everytime without finishing the XCron Method (It wasn't a Xron issue, but it
the XCron Schedule). When Zope tried to restart, it tried to excecute the
Method again, so I got another email. It did it till I opened my email box
(I got 500

With Cron and wget this won't happen because unix/linux finish the
excecution of the
method without caring if it whether crashes or not.
