Mostly doing physics, I sometimes also end up forcing together various innocent binaries in /bin and /usr/bin to get a job done. They usually hold together just long enough to finish :\

I don’t answer questions that use non-SI units.

Ah, right, yes, sorry. Try the solution in serverfault.com/a/363418 , the config file handling is sometimes a little bit…strange :-)

comment How to mirror a website on linux?
If they are linked to from the website and are in the same domain, they will also be downloaded. -p is only necessary as, strictly speaking, CSS files and images are included rather than linked to, i.e. you use <img src= etc. to refer to them rather than <a href=, hence the ‘special’ treatment.

comment Error setting up Crontab
/etc/crontab is not the file you edit with crontab -e. The file you edit with crontab -e is /var/spool/cron/crontabs/$(whoami).

But how would he edit /etc/crontab in a way that these messages are displayed? To my knowledge, changes to /etc/crontab take effect immediately and editing it does not occur via some temporary file in /tmp.

I have no problems adding this line to my user’s crontab using crontab -e on current Debian Wheezy.

comment Error setting up Crontab
If the OP uses a user-specific crontab (usually edited using crontab -e), he must not use a user field. The fact that the crontab is installed hints at a user-specific one rather than /etc/crontab.

comment How to get ~/foo from /home/user1/foo?
@grawity: Yes, I can see that it is somewhat more difficult to get back than forth, but I hope dies last. @Glenn: This already fails for /root. I shall go with a hand-written list instead, but thank you very much for your interest! :)
