I have recurring events that I want to schedule (the events are
sending email, Twitter DMs and Facebook messages -- at least those are
the possible ones that I have identified so far). I need some flexible
way to both specify the intervals and interpret the intervals so that
the next event in a sequence can be specified in real time terms and

The event schedule at least in plain English could be something like "
every weekday at 8:45", "every Monday at 9:00 and 1:00", "every day at
2:00", "the first of every month at 9:00", "every other Monday". I
realize that I may have to settle for something that is not quite as
flexible as I imagine and at least for now I am just trying to see if
someone else has solved this problem or one similar and has something
I can use as a base.

I do have a way to trigger and execute the events at specific times.
