Scheduler User Interface
I'm finalising the revised user interface for the scheduler. Main features are:
- Support for randomizing scheduler tasks - security light mode.
- Macro commands to insert "weekday" and "weekend" tasks.
- User interface improvements including removal of "apply" button.
I wanted to run one other possible change past everybody:
- For sunset and sunrise tasks, remove the latitude and longitude settings from the UI and instead set these automatically from the Location tab settings. These will be reset each time Girder is started. Apart from advantages of simplification, this allows you to reset your position without having to edit Lat and Long in every scheduler task.
The only disadvantage of this is that you will not be able to set tasks for sunrise and sunset at different locations. Of course, you can still do this in Lua if you really need this feature.

Sweet! I've been looking forward to the implementation of the randomizer in the UI. Also, the weekday/weekend feature will save us from having to set an event for all seven days. It's more work than you'd think.
Beware of the robot.
