Gah. I didn't scroll all the way to the bottom when I was looking at that page. Thanks. –  RHPT Jan 6 '12 at 17:22
cheers @RHPT, happens to the best of us. –  Sathya Jan 6 '12 at 17:25
Are you sure it is every 15 minutes? I created an event 36 minutes ago which should have caused a trigger but nothing happened. –  user18015 Mar 10 '12 at 21:48
Seems to take a little longer sometimes. I bet 15 minutes is an average or an estimate. –  Travis Pflanz May 8 '12 at 4:29
