Not sure I approve of this. It lets you create Cron jobs that are executed over the Internet (e.g. Request a webpage which then backs up your website database). I use a similar system on my website, but I keep the requests internal – I use a proper Linux Cron job to execute WGet to request a file on my website, which does “stuff….”

I can see the use of this site if you don’t have that kind of access, or the expertise to setup Cron and WGet, but I don’t like the idea of a potentially hidden URL being known to a company that I know nothing about.

But that could just be the paranoia in me taking hold. Must stop talking, they’re watching me!
