The cron jobs are important, but not totally essential.  But it would  
be good to make the computer wake up at some point to do its cron jobs.  
  You could do it first thing in the morning when it wakes up.

"If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of  
exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an  
idea, which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps  
it to himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into the  
possession of everyone, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself of
