Do you have crond installed and running?

I have been thinking about doing things with cron that would work really
nicely if I could execute curl as an application running on a distant
machine which would send a file to me. I can and do log in using ssh but
it involves a bunch of typing and it's difficult to automate in a remote
machine's crontab when I don't know when I next want it.

I spent a half hour trying to find out about "crond" and as far as I
know now it doesn't exist. But it would be a nice name for a cron that
would reply to requests other than those created by a WWW oriented sales
