    How to CRON without access to CRON settings?

    My site is hosted by a provider. They allow a scheduled cron 3 times in 24 hours. I need it every 15 mins. It only needs to trigger a webpage for which I use windows wget.exe in scheduled tasks on my home computer at present. Is there something I can upload to do this. Or is my only option is to pay a site such as webcron.

    A host update would be required I reckon, there was a post I found where a user had used Google Reader as a way to fire off a remote script.

    Actually, here it is. (3h intervals)

    There are many reason why you shouldn't use this, but the more information the better I say.
