    From the man page at :

    	   field	 allowed values
    	   -----	 --------------
    	   minute	 0-59
    	   hour		 0-23
    	   day of month	 1-31
    	   month	 1-12 (or names, see below)
    	   day of week	 0-7 (0 or 7 is Sun, or use names)
    So your line means:
    run "nice /pathto/" on the 0 and 30th minute of every hour, every date, every month and every weekday.
