    Notify Me Every Time A Page Changes


    I'd like to write a script that notifies me every time a new Craigslist ad is posted in a certain category.

    I have the RSS feed running on my page. What's the best way to have the server check every minute or so for a new ad? Or can it be done without the RSS feed?

    Thanks

    You can use the windows task scheduler to call your asp script. In any case classic asp doesn't have any built-in scheduling capability.
