cron-jobs are updated (to the main job list i guess) every hour..)
I came online a few days ago, & uploaded the test script etc..
& yesterday - the cron job (test script) - sucessfully started, (& is
still) merrily telling me the time - (in the log file) - every minute :)
Yesterday, I logged on, & uploaded my NEW / Correct cron job list..
& came home today & my old/test script is STILL telling me the time..
So Ive sent a message to 'admin' (support dont seem to know..) - Advising
how often cron jobs are updated
I guess nothing to do - but wait..
(anyone got a spare $2.5 million ? - ) - I'll buy my own ADSL / Cable - &
live off the interest - & run my site from home..

use CGI 'param';
use CGI qw/:standard/;
use CGI qw/ :standard param -no_debug /;
Why was 'use CGI' on two lines? Doesn't ':standard' include 'param'?
