it wouldn't be a cron job, you're better off using at.

I suggested already that you shouldn't use cron.

as above, you should use at. And don't call people "dear", it's what you'd call your wife.

thanks and sorry, but still i have the problem, it seems there is no crontab file or smothing like that in the system, because while i am going to save your mentioned cron job it says nothing installed and there is no crontab in the path.
