Did not see /var/log/cron.
/var/log/messages only showed a restart.

my script:

streamripper http://pubint.ic.llnwd.net/stream/pubint_ksfr -l 7205 -t

My crontab:

0 0 * * 4       /home/bb/KSFR/ksfr_script

I tried setting the crontab to use a range but it gave me a file every 
minute instead of one long file.
