in reply to CGI daily 'cleanup' task

I'm trying to avoid a system scheduler (cron, or the like).

Can you say more on why you want to avoid using a scheduled cleanup process?

I do my periodic cleanup on two sites (on FreeBSD) via cron, and it works very well. However, I've had miserable luck on Win32 systems (WinNT, Win2K) getting the scheduling service to reliably run a task.
