Well it works on my machine... checked if your cron daemon's running?
Cause when I was new to Linux I didn't even know there was a cron daemon and thus had some problems getting cronjobs to run, too. ^^
Before starting my exercise with cron i cleared the contents of /var/log/cron. So that when my job runs it will update the log file, i can easily monitor the log. Now my cron jobs are working, but the /var/log/cron is not being updated. I had restarted the crond daemon. But it still does not update the /var/log/cron.
