10.4: Search Firefox bookmarks with Spotlight
Authored by: alys on Aug 31, '05 09:16:44PM

The instructions state:

If you're not familiar with cron, just type this in to schedule it for every 10 minutes:
echo "0,10,20,30,40,50 * * * * /usr/local/bin/ > /dev/null 2>&1" | crontab

If you do that, it will DELETE anything else that has previously been scheduled using cron. At least it does that on my Linux box; I don't have my Mac with me to check - someone with a Mac might want to test to confirm or deny this (backup your crontab file first - if you don't know how to do that, then do NOT test this). The submitter of this hint might want to remove that part of the instructions.
