See 'man 6 random' and 'man sleep'. Then try doing something like this in the background: #!/bin/sh while true do random -e 60 randomNumber=$? sleep $randomNumber <do shell script here> done Where '60' means, maximum 60 seconds between two script calls. There might be better or nices ways of doing this :).
