Yeah, sorry, I was thinking of this:


"A module which runs the Drupal cron operations without needing the cron 
application. For every page view, this module checks to see if the last 
cron run was more than 1 hour ago (this period is configurable). If so, 
the cron hooks are executed, and Drupal is happy. These cron hooks fire 
after all HTML is returned to the browser, so the user who kicks off the 
cron jobs should not notice any delay."
