Question


Hey,

I have a great Linux Shell account. I know how to upload, etc. I was wondering How do you run a program? Ive heard of cron, but is that what I need? I just want it to run forever.

Lol, ya I am allowed 5 background processes. Its a company that gives free shell accounts (T3 line) to open source buisinesses. You have to give REAL proff of it. My company is called Downtown Software. I am the founder and there are about 5-10 people that work for me . We fix computers for free and after the employee has clocked 24hrs of work, they get to keep any left over parts. We recieve tons of donations...thats what keeps us running!
