Details somebody please.
My trouble with crontab was (and still is) that @reboot does absolutely nothing. No matter what I try to have happen @reboot doesn't run.*

Thanks for a new idea, though! I shall explore using a service with tmux first, since I'm already using that regularly and somewhere I read that screen is deprecated, at least in some linux packages.

* I read somewhere that having both cron and anacron could cause this, but I have only cron.
