Fair enough, one line less.

I just assumed that since touch -t didn't change the correct timestamp, just
running touch wouldn't do it either, but I just tested it and you are right,
just running touch will do it.

Actually, I overlooked that if you do what I said, you'd skip one night's
daily run. So instead

at 4.59am

should make it run at 5am
