Could someone check the following line in /etc/crontab ?

#dfarning set timestamp on download dir
26 * * * *      mirrorbrain perl -e 'printf "%s\n", time' >

It is supposed to update a time stamp in the /srv/upload .  It work
fine when running

mirrorbrain at sunjammer:/var/log$ perl -e 'printf "%s\n", time' >
mirrorbrain at sunjammer:/var/log$

It doesn't seem to work when run as a cron job.
