How can I take information and have it displayed on another page even when my computer is turned off? It would need to update every 5-10 minutes or so and display on MY page.

are you hosting your webpage on your own computer or some other server? if it is some other server, then just setup a cron job.  if it's you're own computer.. well if you turn it off, then it's off.
Did I help you? Feeling generous? Buy me lunch! 
Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)

I am using InvisionFree Forums for the place where I want the text to be displayed.

Ill try to explain fully.

1. Obtain small amount of information (the numbers change about every 10-15 minutes)
2. Display in a small box on my forums
3. Have it run constantly even with my computer turned off

If I need to run something through a server could I use Freewebs?

Can I ask what makes you think having your computer on would make a difference?

Sorry.. Istill dont understand your question. What does your computer have to do with displaying something on your page? Is your page hosted on a public server ie; The internet?

The information I want displayed is hosted by someone else. I just want small changing amount of numbers (3 at the most) to be displayed on my webpage.

My webpage is just an InvisionFree. I could use a Freewebs if needed. I don't really want to pay.

Is this correct:

1. You have a message board hosted with InvisionFree.com?

2. You want to update something on your message board from your home computer?

3. You want this done automatically at certain time periods?
Why is there always so much month left at the end of the money?

The info I want updated is on another webpage NOT hosted by me but is another InvisionFree Board.
