    Hi,

    I want to run programs on the webserver (I use a provider) at regular
    intervals. Is it possible to have a webform timer control do that or do I
    need a cron job in any case?

    Thanks,

    Oliver

    cron job == unix != .net :)

    but apart from that, it IS possible to start a timer in Global.asax
    (on application start), that regularly calls a method (timer-event handler)
    in that same file. What you there is up to you ...
