    hi chris,

    as far as i can say some jobs are done over night, for example
    counting files or calculating directory sizes. this is only done once
    a day to reduce processor load. maybe that's why cron is used,
    though i'm not sure as i don't have the time to take a closer look
    at the technology behind it.
