wp-o-matic trick

discovered a trick about wp-o-matic as i was building the new site. for wp-o-matic to work and not lag, you need to set up a cron job. but said cron job doesn’t *necessarily* need to happen on the host server. so, if you have a server that allows cron jobs (which i do, at home) and a *different* server hosting your site (which i do, at 1and1), you can set up a cron job on the other server that will control your wp-o-matic updates on your non-cron-enabled website.
