    If you search Edwins last posts, he posted a tool which does exactly that. I can't remember the topic but he's not posted a lot since then :/

    Edit: Alternatively a quick and dirty method, if you know php and can run crons on your hosting, its quite a simple script, curl a copy in, strpos a specific bit, store in a database then run the cron daily (or however often) to compare the curl version to the stored version, fire an email when they don't match.

    Thanks for the replies,

    Just had a quick look at that Grant and it looks pretty much spot on for what I need.
