I would like to know if it's possible to use APT to automate tasks at, say, 2am. What I'm trying to achieve is the following:
At 2am, I'm 99.999% sure to be home, when I'm home, my centro is never far from a bluetooth usb dongle on my PC. Therefore, I have the following questions:
* Would apt work on a Centro? (the latest white unlocked Centros sold from palm.com)
* Would apt be able to "wake up" at 2am, and start blue ftp from resco (for instance after turning bluetooth on) and at 2:05am my PC's crontab would automagically fetch and put some files from the centro (namely, backup a few important directories and upload tomorrow's weather, rss feeds, The Economist audiobook[mp3] newspaper and other news or simply random mp3/comic book of the day).
* Then at 2:30am, APT would shutdown blue ftp (and as you could expect, turn bluetooth off).
Would this be possible, if so, then I'd buy it in a heartbeat, assuming (and this is a question in itself) than APT is stable on a Centro. Also, if the bluetooth-enabled PC is not in range (meaning that I'm not home of course) I expect APT to fail gracefully. The purpose is to automate backups and get my feeds ready in the morning before I leave home, without having to use the usb<->centro cable. If this is not possible with bluetooth, is it possible with IRDA?
Please note that I don't expect APT to do anything regarding the PC-side of this equation, this will be handled by crontab and a few perl scripts on a fine unix-like box; well, whatever can support a usb bluetooth receiver and perl+crontab.
