comment How can I view results of my cron jobs?
@Timmmm: I does work. It first redirects everything from some_job.sh's stdout to /dev/null and only after its stderr to stdout (which now contains nothing itself anymore). That way only its stderr ends up in stdout and is passed on to mail.

comment Is there a health risk from radiation with a laptop power supply?
Actually, a hot power supply can become dangerous (for guys) even before it starts burning your skin away. Just google around, e.g. wired.com/wiredscience/2010/11/…

comment Does the Update Manager in Linux distributions update packages installed via the terminal?
If you are talking about Debian system like in your example, yes, but don't try to e.g. mix rpm and yum in weird ways.
