i there a way to do this?

Recommended Posts

I would like to run a script on my site. I want it to run 24/7 on the server without it having anything to do with ppl lookin on my site. Basically I'm trying to write a script that checks something on a different site and once that thing is there, I want it to e-mail me. Is there anyway this can be done? using php or anything else? thank you in advance.
