Hello everyone,

I want to fetch some (5-10) RSS feeds from another server. I plan to
fetch the RSS feeds asynchronously and store them on the hard disk
every 30 minutes so I can read them from there on every request. (To
treat the remote server with care and to avoid longer page generation

What is the best way to do that?

I think about starting a fetcher-thread on the start of my Rails
application. I want to avoid cron jobs to keep everything in the Rails

Thank you!

So long
Lennart K.
