    Question Automatic Time Refreshing Pages

    OK the title is a bit of a confusing one but its a pretty hard question to explain. So here goes...

    Basically I want to try and create a page that refreshes with information from a database at certain GMT Times.

    For Example:

    Time: 15:15

    SHIP LOCATION
    Clansman en-route Barra

    [PAGE REFRESHES]

    Time: 15:20

    SHIP LOCATION
    Clansman berthed @ Barra

    I have all the data built into a database, i just need some advice on weather it is possible to have a page that can update at certain times with specific information.

    OR

    Will i need to have a page that auto updates to another page - if so how can i get it to update at GMT Times (presumably from the users PC)??!

    Help!

    Regards,

    Steve

    This seems like a client-side solution, you may get more help in the javascript forums.

    You may need to get the users time, manipulate it to the correct time zone, then refresh the page using a timeout for the amount of time between 'now' and 'when to update next', then have the js reload the page.
