How CRON Works
Linux tasks are often automated through the Cron application. Users may use Cron to schedule jobs to run at a specific time on a specific date. Cron will automatically create backup files or directories when specified by the user. Cron applications are most often used in Unix-like computer operating systems. Cron is derived from the Greek word, Chronos - meaning time in the Greek language.
Installing Updated in Ubuntu 10.04 fixes bugs, improve security, and make Ubuntu faster and more reliable. Ubuntu Software Manager also updates software which you installed to Ubuntu.
It is very easy to manually check and install Updates to Ubuntu. You go to your System Menu on the top tool bar then pick administration from the sub menu and pick the Update manager option. Click the "Check " button, type in your administrator password which was the first password you made when you installed Ubuntu. Click the install Updates button, and wait for Ubuntu to install your updates. You may need to restart your computer after you installed all your updates for Ubuntu.
If you encounter errors during the update, restart your computer and update Ubuntu at a latter time
Recently, I decided to improve the navigation, descriptions, pictures, and readability of my Ubuntu 8.10 Install and update tutorial site to make it more easier to read and understand for most computer users from Beginners to more advance Ubuntu users. I removed the weird theme I made many years a go. I decided to make the colour of the background white and the text black. I also added some videos on burning the Ubuntu CD, Starting your computer from the Ubuntu CD, and Installing and updating Ubuntu 8.10 on a home computer. I also improve the html code, so my website should load a little bit faster on most internet connection because there is less code to process.

Virtual Machines tend to get broken a lot since people love to use them for testing out new programs, viruses, antiviruses, and other programs which can corrupt a Windows or Linux based Virtual machine. But, you might have saved important data on your virtual machine which you need like a word document. I'll show you how to recover your files to another virtual drive, or a USB drive by booting the Ubuntu 10.04 LTS ISO CD Image in Virtual Box by Oracle.
1. First you right click your virtual machine which you can't log into because of a lost password or username, or can't boot.
2. Go to the System section, and make CD/DVD-ROM the first boot device by using the up and down arrow buttons to move the CD DVD-ROM to the top of the list.
3. Make sure in Storage, make sure the CD DVD disc image is set to your Ubuntu 10.04 LTS install ISO or set to your real CD-ROM Drive with the actual Ubuntu 10.04 LTS install CD in it.
