Possible with ASP?

P: n/a
I want to create a 20 minute loop to generate an include file based on the
html output of another file on a remote server. Is this possible using ASP?
If so, how do you generate an application to check something every 20
minutes?!

Place some VBScript in a scheduled task to run every 20 minutes?

Is there any reason this code has to run in the context of a Web Server?

If so, then do the same but have the VBScript use ServerXMLHTTP make request
to the ASP page that does the actual work.

If this isn't your server and you don't have access to services, scheduled
tasks etc then your stuck. Only other possiblity is have a client ping the
server every 20 minutes.

There is no reason to do a loop.

If the include file is an asp file it can return different output depending
on the server clock.

pseudo code:

if time between 0 and 20 minutes in the hour output this code
else if time beween 20 and 40 ...
else [40 and 60] ....
