While this list exists for helping members share knowledge, it really
shouldn't be used as a substitute for google. Being rusty isn't a
valid excuse for this.

Time invested doing things right at the beginning will save you time
exponentially later. Just because YOU need to get things done now
doesn't really justify hitting the list for every little question. YOU
are the one getting paid to do the job, not us.

Cron job scheduling hasn't changed meaningfully in at least a decade.
You're far beyond the 'rusty' point here, and still not using the
documentation or google because you're in a hurry.

I personally consider this behavior to be rude to other members of the
list who legitimately need assistance.
