    Default crontab -e vs cron.d

    I've some scripts in cron.d and I want to set another cron job but I did ti like
    Code:
    crontab -e
    and add it here, would it collide or these jobs are running simultaneously and it's OK to do it this way?

    Yes, that should be fine.

    It is OK.
    Of course, if you set jobs to run at the same time, they should run at
    the same time, regardless where they are written to.
