It's good that you bring this up. I'm pondering a similar problem, but
mine is setting up an email account that I could use to post to
Blogger API. The idea is that I could post to my blog by sending email
to the specified address through my cellphone. Setting up a cron job
seems to be the only way, unless there is a way for a mailbox to
trigger a script when it receives mail?
