Is there a quick way to find out all users that have anything in their crontabs? Say if i have about 20 users and i am trying to find out which ones have tasks, but i don't feel like checking them one by one. I probly could write up a shell script to iterate through users and figure it out, but i just don't want to kill a fly with bazooka, if i can do it with rolled newspaper.

Look in /var/spool/cron/crontabs. This will show you everyone with a crontab.
