Crontab just won't work

Hi! There's a service I have to run every 10 minutes on my server. Even though I wrote the cronjob for it, it just won't execute the file. Settings are as follows:

crontab -l:

10 * * * * /home/user/project/

cat /etc/crontab:

10 * * * * root /home/user/project/

In /var/log/messages I see cron-related logs like "Starting Session 851 of user root" every 10 minutes, but nothing happens.

The project itself is perfectly fine, I run it without any issues.

I also tried:

10 * * * * root sh /home/user/project/

File's permissions are: -rwxrwxr-x

Adding one module to AS 3.3 beta 4 takes 15 minutes. It is just me?

Gradle sync log after adding an Application module

So I have a medium size project developing on AS 3.3 beta 4. It has a few library modules and a few application modules. Below are some observations that make me feel bad:

- Changing version of one dependencies and the re-sync takes like forever to finish (stop counting at 5th minute)

- Adding a new Application module and the duration is as the screenshot above.

I observe this sync hell since AS 3.3 alpha 12 or something, but always thought it is alpha so they are testing something else. I remember it is not that long in AS 3.2 or earlier ... Less than 2 minutes at least (or even 1 minutes to add a new module).

Does anyone have this kind of experience? Or it is just me and my dream?

P/S My Mac is an i7 16GB one and it is a few hundred Mbps network.

[HELP] Can I trigger events based on *how close* I am to a Break Device? (Via Bluetooth signal strength maybe?)

Tasker: Total Automation for Android - Fri, 11/16/2018 - 02:07

Basically what the title says. I'm setting up my first few smart lights, and don't (currently) have motion sensors. I do have Bluetooth device in most rooms though.

With that in mind: Is there a way to trigger a task based specifically on the strength level of a BT device? Like, "only turn on lights if BT Near 85% connection strength"?

(Or similar with WiFi?)

If at first or second you don't succeed, you may be Microsoft: Hold off installing re-released Windows Oct Update

Six weeks after first release f build 1809, and Redmond still can't get it right

The 1809 build of Windows 10 and Windows Server is fast becoming infamous, after Redmond pulled it shortly after release when it started deleting people's files and stumbling in other ways. Redmond reissued the software on Tuesday, and today it's clear you shouldn't rush into deploying it, if installing it at all, in its present state.…

Finally making the switch to Linux

Linux - Fri, 11/16/2018 - 01:42

I was on the fence about this but after windows 10s October update it tipped me to switch. I've got some experience with Linux machines(raspberry pi) Anyway, tbh I'm happy to leave, Windows is so restrictive without changing registry settings etc.
