I had it that way for my Tweet program and then I added the website stuff that John provided. I didn't want to update the website more than about every 5 minutes so I first tried 300 seconds. When that gave me errors I tried 3600 and it gives the same errors. That's when I figured something I was doing was wrong. I can just put a timer on each action and that will work.

As I recall, you have to have the On Update action execute at least once per minute within the action file.
If possible, run the On Update < 60 seconds. If you need to limit certain actions to once per hour, create a time limiter for them in the action file.
Is there a reason that you are only executing the On Update action once per hour?

See Alerts/Actions then 'On Update Seconds' setting."
