$HOME in paths

Please note that $HOME when used in paths will not work in Crontab files.

You must use the full path to your files.

If you have scripts running from Crontab and use $HOME in the path please check that they are running because if you are not using the MAILTO=cron@username.f9.co.uk line in the Crontab file you will not know that they are now failing.

I was not and have only just found out that what used to work just fine had stopped working correctly.
