It would help to add a feature in the next release to set the scripts to run at a specified time. This way people could farm at 5:00am and not worry about contributing to crimbo lag.

to run a script on a timer...at a certain time while you are away is easy. Windows has a task scheduler which can start any program at any time. you can access it via control panel. Other operating systems should have something similar.

http://kolmafia.us/index.php/topic,119.msg514.html#msg514
gives instructions how to set up a sequential run of multiple accounts using an MS-dos batch file. the same principles apply, instead of writing a batch file to run kolmafia, set task scheduler to run kolmafia in the same way.

No need for modification to kolmafia when everyone should know how to use task scheduler for other purposes anyway.
