    Change the date temporarily to next Saturday(2/18/12), then reboot. That way you can test/retest things without having to wait many days :) And, you can test everyday; multiple times if you've determined the time during the day when this happens and fiddle around with the hourly/minute clock.

    If stuff happens, then it -is- date dependent. If nothing happens, then you may be encountering a countdown timer that is not date dependent, but just happens to countdown an interval that arrives on the next saturday.

    Thanks for the tip :)

    I have tried setting time in 10-minute increments. It does not seem to trigger the writing.

    The writing must be countdown triggered as setting the time did not have any effect :confused:

    I will keep you all updated on Saturday. I will set the time one day ahead to make sure that it is countdown triggered. :)
