Pschedule fixed

April 01, 2015 — BarryK
Quirky 7.0.2 testers have reported that Pschedule (see System menu) is broken.

The problem is that the 'crond' utility uses /var/spool/cron, which Quirky does not save between reboots.
Quirky, like many puppies (though that depends on their PUPMODE), only saves /var/local.

So, I have changed crond to use /var/local, and it all seems to work now.
