This is just purely an example, but you will see that this is a cron entry that will run at 6:30AM and then 3:30PM (15 is 3 in military time). Just comma seperate the hours, or comma seperate whatever section of the cron.
OK, I took the 0logwatch script from /etc/cron.daily and I put in a new directory called /etc/cron.twice_daily.
Then I added "0 5,17 * * * root run-parts /etc/cron.twice_daily" in my crontab and restarted cron.
That should work, right? This is the first time I've ever really used cron.
