Hey everybody, I'm running InstantRails 2.1.0 under Windows Server 2003 and I'm looking for a plugin or something that will allow me to schedule and complete long-running tasks in the background. I was trying to use backgrounDRB until I realized that I can't use it with Windows... What I want to do is pretty basic. My app has an "autosync" section where the user specifies the time interval between running the task. To run the task, all I need to do is Autosync.new. Now I just need to actually tie them together with a scheduler. Anybody have any suggestions on how to do this? Which plugin or method is the best? Thanks, any and all help is appreciated! - Jeff M.

No idea if these run on windows, but several of the recent railscasts talk about exactly this. http://railscasts.com/ #127, #128, and #129. -philip
