comment Do I need to stop processes like mysql or apache before “reboot”?
I know this is the case in older (over 10 years ago) Unix systems (hp-ux, Solaris, aix). I haven't work with the newer versions of them, is it still true?

comment Run a script via cron every other week
By 3 Thursdays, did you mean 3 Thursdays that the script would run and not 3 total Thursdays? I may have misread it the first time.

comment Run a script via cron every other week
Is there a month that has only 3 Thursdays? Although I can see it skip a week if there are 5 Thursdays. It can be updated to 1-7,15-21,29-31, but then it would run back-to-back if there were any matches for the last set...
