Hi Will!
cron - its a UNINX,LINUX (POSIX) program if you never work with UNIX, only Windows, it's like shedule.
You can use cron for planind start some script or programm before run you'r main programm.

If your hosting use Unix OS - he has Cron. If you can so it on your control panel may be you push button and makes some experements with cron...

Best regards.
