There is a website that puts out a report each night via PDF, distributed at a URL. I need a way to monitor that site and I need to know when the new report comes out and would like the program to open the report and provide audible alarm when the report is updated.
The program does not need to analyze the file, only to tell me if the file is different from the one the night before. The program could look at the existing file before the update period, between 8:00 PM and 9:00 PM and compare the PDF that is already there to the PDF the comes. I just need to know when the file changes, no analysis of the file is necessary at this time.
The file is at the following site:

I would like the program to check this file every 5 seconds and notify when the new file is posted. The file has the same name every night, so simple name comparison of the file will not work. Some type of comparative analysis will have to be performed to see if the file has changed.
