I've been writing, and some time has passed, so lets see if our cronjobs are working...

The 2 log files have been created, so far so good...
now lets look inside.

As expected, you can see the date/time appends to the log files
log1.txt appends are each 2 minuets apart and the log2.txt appends are 10 minutes apart. As it stands now,
these files will continue to grow until disk space runs out, so I better modify those jobs.

One additional note:
You don't need to know where your personal crontab file is located or the actual file name, but if your curious...
It's located here: /var/spool/cron/crontabs/
The file name is the user name, in my case, it's called debtboy.
Your system may be slightly different.
