    [SOLVED] Run commands at specific time?

    I know there is a command in terminal to run something at a specific time

    but I can't figure out what it is. I have seen it before but can't find it again.

    any help.

    Thanks

    this will do the trick but I thought I saw a single serve command somewhere that was something simple like

    Code:
    at -10:30 "????"
    I may be wrong

    Please correct me if there is nothing like this.
