Response to: "pico -w" for editing config files

Hi Jerry! Thanks for the comment.

As you suspected, pico on OS X *does* open with the -w option by default. So there's no danger of splitting crontab lines by following this procedure.

This does point out the fact, though, that the tutorial is specific to Mac OS X, and should not be tried with other Unices unless you know what you're doing -- in which case, you wouldn't be using the tutorial anyway :-)

Thanks again!
