My Favourite book!


Oliver Twist is born in a workhouse in 1830s England. His mother, whose name no one knows, is found on the street and dies just after Oliver’s birth. Oliver spends the first nine years of his life in a badly run home for young orphans and then is transferred to a workhouse for adults. After the other boys bully Oliver into asking for more gruel at the end of a meal, Mr. Bumble, the parish beadle, offers five pounds to anyone who will take the boy away from the workhouse. Oliver narrowly escapes being apprenticed to a brutish chimney sweep and is eventually apprenticed to a local undertaker, Mr. Sowerberry. When the undertaker’s other apprentice, Noah Claypole, makes disparaging comments about Oliver’s mother, Oliver attacks him and incurs the Sowerberrys’ wrath. Desperate, Oliver runs away at dawn and travels toward London.

Hi Pavi,

Regarding your query on how to set a cron job:
From your shell, enter:
export EDITOR=vi
crontab -e

In vi, enter:
05 2 * * * /path/to/download_starter
55 7 * * * /path/to/download_stopper

This schedules the download_starter (which you must replace with the actual download program) at 02:05 AM everyday, and the download_stopper at 07:55 AM everyday.

Hope this helps.

Cheers,
Sandeep

PS: I liked Prey as well :-)
