[SunHELP] crontab

   For the rest of this month, the developers have asked me to reset the
   date on a remote server on a nightly basis to 17th November 2004, this
   is to facilitate their testing.  Rather than call me on a daily basis,
   they want me to automate this task.

   I'm thinking the quickest way would be to put an entry into crontab
   such as this:

   05 1 * 10 * /usr/bin/date 11170105

   Could anyone advise of potential/definte problems with this approach,
   or suggest something a little more sophisticated.
