  • Was about to say the same thing. I like having all the scheduled programs in the same place. Nightly stuff, @reboot stuff, all in crontab.

  • Anyone considering a project like this should probably also look into arcade control boards, especially if you're not so comfortable with programming or the Arduino IDE (or you're in a hurry). Ultimarc has some excellent offerings, which I have used. A windows app lets you map pins to keyboard keys, and write to the firmware on the board. The board then acts as a USB keyboard. My project used arcade buttons and an ATTiny to drive a simple capacitive touch sensor and write to the pins on the Ultimarc board. It was a foot powered mouse for someone that couldn't use their arms.

No public wish lists :(
