Ignore the noise from the peanut gallery. I for one am happy you posted here. I'm always happy to read about different ways of doing transfers. And, regardless of anything else, I learned about CronniX. Yes I've used cron before, but every unix system does things a little differently, so I'm happy to see an easy way to use cron on OS X. Now if only OS X had /etc/fstab, I'd be a happy camper. That's just a rhetorical by-the-way comment. I realize that it used to support it, and maybe still does, and I realize that OS X wants to do things differently.
