I assume that the platform that agent would be running upon would be Windows
NT? If so, look into AT commands. You would just have AT call your ASP script
every X seconds/minutes/hours/whatever. Then, you can do anything with the ASP
script that you can do in ASP. But, if you're running it frequently, make sure
you balance things out with stored procs, etc.
