    Regularly requesting and saving a resource

    I'm wondering if this is possible to do using a serverside language such as PERL, python, PHP or ASP without access to server commands such as cron.

    indirectly.

    Depends on how you'll do it, too. Apps can be run as a service. Other option is to create an application that sits and awaits information, and then schedule a client app to send it that information to make the update. It would have to run as a server daemon, though. One option would be like a webserver running php.

    Have a php script that updates that resource...and create a browser client in vb that regularly hits that script...

    you could make a serverside page that did it and tirgger it by accessing it from your computer, you could of course use javascript to launch it in a popup and then close it.
