I cant seem to get cron jobs to run on my LilyDev - I've done all the
cron.allow etc. I was wondering (if anyone knows immediately) if
stating the command in cron requires anything special if using two
concatenated commands.

I.e. I run cd /home/james/lilypond-git && python
/home/james/patchy/ which works at the CLI
but not when I enter that literally in cron. I tried surrounding it in
" ' " but that didn't seem to make any difference.

I'll look more on the internet to see (man page wasn't that helpful).

Anyway, for now I have a 'while true do patchy then sleep 6 hours
done' loop running on my box at home which does the job just as well
until I figure why cron isn't working.

So I think after tonight you can consider patchy staging running on my
machine at home 24 x 7 (internet connection accepted :) ).

Phil, can I add you as a cc to patchy in case it all goes wrong and
you [don't]get the notification?
