I tried doing this with @reboot in all the time arguments and in just the
minutes. When I reboot, neither way works. How exactly do I put @reboot in
the crontab? Could you give me an example, please?
Here is what I have currently:
@reboot * * * * fahstart
'fahstart' is what I normally type to get Folding@Home going. It's a little
script in ~/bin.
