I wanted to provide an answer but also indicate that this question variables in crontab was a duplicate an existing question, and provide a link to the answer that I thought was best. ie This one, https://stackoverflow.com/a/10657111/1515570
What I find particularily irritating, are two things.
- My answer was short and to the point, so it was interpreted as too short and was immediately converted to a comment. I would have prefered it gave me a chance to expand on my answer, so that I wouldn't have to remove the comment and expand on it!
- I couldn't flag the questions, and provide, the Stack Overflow question as an answer, because it belongs to another site on stack exchange. Even though, in my opinion it was a very good answer and had received 55 votes.
How should I handle these situations? I tend to give up and shrug my shoulders ?
