Sorry I missed the e-mail thread completely, but I want to add the

koko ~>cat /etc/periodic.conf 
# added by mergebase.sh

So there is a file in /etc, called periodic.conf with the statement:

So why do you use /etc/periodic.conf.local? Is periodic.conf.local not
touched by a possible FreeBSD upgrade? Is
local_periodic="/usr/local/etc/periodic" not the default?

Met vriendelijke groeten,
With kind regards,
Mit freundlichen Gruessen,
