I am beginning to think that this was not such a good idea that it seemed to
me at first. :)

Perhaps the subject line should have read "built-in cron in PHP".

But if I have PHP compiled as an Apache module (as it is on most web hosting
services), I have to set up the cron job to use something like lynx to load
a PHP page. I don't think that is a good way of doing it. Also, it works
only on Unix. To use the task scheduler on Windows I belive on has to have
Administrator privileges and on many Unix hosts you are not allowed to set
up your own cron jobs.

But making a built-in cron is probably not the right solution. Switching to
a better host is.
