my colleague was asking about this:
is there a way to run a cron job biweekly, like a script five.sh
to run every *OTHER* Friday within November
its part about every other Friday we cant find any documentation.

Ok here goes for the past 2 weeks I have been looking for anything that will help. I have to create a bash script using Ubuntu with terminal commands. The script must check if today is a friday and if it is say today is friday. I got that at least I think I do. The second part is to check if today is Friday the 13th and if it is say Today is Friday the 13th. All this in one bash script.
I've got a weird problem with cron not running my flexget task. Basically, I've told it to run a script every hour (0 * * * * /path/to/script). This script calls "flexget --cron", and then logs a success to a log file. Calling the script manually works fine, however nothing happens when cron tries to run it.
I was working on my Debian, minding my own business but then I wanted to see what happened if the same user was included on both cron.allow and cron.deny :p
I would have bet that cron.deny was going to override cron.allow for security reasons, but my computer proved me wrong: cron.allow seems to override cron.deny, so if you are on both, you can still cron jobs.
