Python Script: Apollia's Relative Scheduler v1.0

Site Update
Software Release

Here's a Python* script I first wrote back in March or April 2012.

Apollia's Relative Scheduler v1.0

As usual, it's only sure to work in Lucid Puppy Linux 5.2.8 version 004.

All it does is, it asks you for the time you woke up, then generates a schedule for you with many events relative to the time you put in (and some fixed-time events, if you like). The schedule is an HTML file viewable in a web browser. The script also sets up cron to display reminders.

(Warning: this script will wipe out any existing cron events you've set up.)

It's definitely not my best work, and Python is definitely not my favorite language, but, it gets the job done.

Why did I write such a thing at all? Because my sleep issues are so severe that ordinary scheduler software (which typically only lets you put in events happening at fixed times) is largely useless to me.

I suspect I probably have Non-24-Hour Sleep-Wake Disorder, or something similar - a physical problem which messes up my circadian rhythms. I will actually be posting more about that quite soon.
