I think you may have missed the original post, where poor old

So his problem isn't he needs to schedule some tasks, but rather he
has to exercise a horrible app by sitting mindlessly in front of
a Gui and remembering to click something at it every so often. Poor
Grant is going to expire of boredom before the job gets done. But
a python program can be plenty intelligent enough for this task.
So Grant? How did it go? Would you recommend it for the rest of us?
