Rails_cron, or script/runner. Google is your friend.

I have exactly the same thing. You can search the list archives for my
discussion with Kyle and Francois about it. Try: “periodic updater”

If you need some example code, maybe you’d like to take a look at the
code on the SVN repo at http://svn.berlios.de/svnroot/repos/motiro

Cheers,

Yea, I was thinking about adding a cron job to script/runner. Or even
not script/runner. But you can create a simple script
that loads the Rails environment. I mention that because I couldnt
tell if my scripts were loaded properly through runner.

For example (most of the script, no runner used):

require File.dirname(FILE) + ‘/…/…/config/environment’
ctr = 0

Iterate through the user links

and extract the various keywords.

for link in UserLink.find(:all)
end
