Unfortunately, your page doesn't perform any validation or parsing of
the arguments, or show when the specified entry would run; the one
referred to by the OP does. I don't mean to knock your effort, but it's
not the same category of thing at all.
'crontab', as Joey showed in his article, is a fairly complex beast, and
checking its syntax is a good idea for those who aren't yet comfortable
with it, is a good idea.
