New Old Mac

More fun with the new old Mac. I need to install make and some development tools. I went to install some Perl modules so I can use the Mac as my main box to download the archive MP3s of WREK shows and burn them to CD. I couldn’t install them since I was lacking make and a few other development tools. Once I get them on, I’ll really be rocking. I can then move all my stuff from being the Windows scheduler calling the perl scripts to a crontab entry on the Mac. Just the fact that my Mac has a built in cron (I used to have a fake-o cron-like extension on the System 8.6 box) makes me happy.
