I’ve never played with crontab, but the wiki has some stuff on it:

I use webcron.org or cronjob.de

I do this to run rsync for a mirror I host here. It is run daily and takes about 30 seconds to a minute to run. The wiki will definately be useful as up to now I was used to using a custom script that my prior host wrote (the admin could do miracles with ksh scripting).
