Haven't had a change to investigate this and thought someone may have a 
good idea as to the best approach. I'm after a way for a process to be 
notified on the hour and then every quarter hour there after, eg, 00:00, 
00:15, 00:30, 00:45, etc. The use of a quarter hour is just an example 
and in the real application it will be configurable. The use of notify 
hints at the use of gen_event as the receive or as an intermediary. The 
question really then is what is the best way to generate these events? 
Is there a standard approach, etc?
