I've found that there are few ISPs that offer cron support. There are 
many ways around this, like setting up cron on your local machine to 
run the job remotely -- this is what I do with my Drupal account and my 
local OS X machine.

An excellent hosting company based in Montreal is XLInternet 
(http://www.xlinternet.com). 500MB space, MySQL, PHP, Perl -- even 
Tomcat. Depending on reseller plan, as low as $150CDN annually. They 
also have a sister company in Singapore if anyone needs Asia-based
