I'm new to cron scripts and need to make a crontab that runs a script. say /etc/update/ every 60 seconds. Which may be a bit much, But its for keeping my dynamic IP updated with my domain and I can't afford any downtime so the minimal the better. I'm using slackware 10.2 in case the distro matters.
