comment In linux, would it be possible to run a script every day 3 minutes later than the previous day?
To avoid drift, tell the script what time it's supposed to run and let it add 24h 3m to that.

comment Run a command that is shadowed by an alias
You have to know where the command is. On some systems, the division between /bin and /usr/bin is arbitrary.
