Hypothesis

OK, I think my understanding of what’s going on with my runaway osascript process has focused to a leading candidate: namely, a malformed or bugged cron job. Today’s question is, “Where do I look for the system crontab and for any user crontab that some application or installation might have constructed?”

    the system crontab file is at
    /private/etc/

    You can look at your own crontab in the terminal window by typing “crontab -l” this will “list” or display the contents of the file. To edit the file, type “crontab -e” This will start the editor vi, so make sure you know how to edit, save and exit the application before you start.
