Just a thought. Instead of updating the included file periodically,
why not just update it when the menu changes?

I have never had to do this on a Win machine. I have heard you can do
it with something called AT. If you were on *nix, you would just set
up a cron job.

In reality, though, this could be set up anywhere. It doesn't have to
be on the server that the script is on. You just need some machine
somewhere to call this script every n hours. There are also sites
which will set up these kinds of cron jobs for you for free.
