I have a fresh install of Ubuntu Desktop 20.04 and added my daily jobs scripts to /etc/cron.daily. They email me when done so I know the time that they complete. I see that these are running at around 7:35am everyday.

When I check /lib/systemd/system/anacron.timer I see:

Code:
[Unit]
Description=Trigger anacron every hour

[Timer]
OnCalendar=*-*-* 07..23:30
RandomizedDelaySec=5m
Persistent=true

[Install]
WantedBy=timers.target
I want to change my jobs to run at about 5:30am. I'll use an override edit for that so I don't change the system file. Can someone explain the syntax of the OnCalendar line. I don't get what 07..23:30 means? The 2 '.' after 07 confuses me.
