Thanks for all help on this.
Will try this to night.
I will use it as a simple alarm for me to wake up.
I haven't found any good alarmclocks out there for command lines.

So if you're remoted into your home machine from work, and you enqueue the job there, it will run at home (and thus play sound there, rather than work). I'm sure this is obvious, but I just figured I'd make sure that it was spelled out.
