Alternative Method

Re:, You don't actually need any extra packages or scripts. A simple cron job that utilizes wget to grab the 'direct link' to update will suffice. It is also quite easy to make a simple bash script that deletes the downloaded page once you have updated. Also, 5 minute cron intervals (as the article suggests to do), is a little extreme- unless you have an incredibly unstable connection and a dynamic IP. I would suggest that even a 15-20 minute update interval would suffice- to each their own I suppose that is more a matter of personal preference. Axanon 19:24, 25 March 2012 (EDT)
