I have a project where I need to update a database with changing info
about every 20 mins - I figured the cron.quarter-hourly would work
great, and made up a php script to update the database and make some
other tweaks. this runs fine from a shell with "lynx
http://www.site.com/something.php -dump" but cron emails me saying "your
terminal cannot change lines or move the cursor" is there any way to
make lynx play nice?
