It wasnt a too hard thing to do. Heres the Patch for
You declare a worker to be a repetitive one by doing this in your worker

class FooWorker < BackgrounDRb::Rails
   repeat 24.hours
   start_first tomorrow.midnight

   def do_work
     @ logger.info 'i will appear on midnight every day from now!'

now the task is started next midnight and repeated every 24 hours.
start_first even takes "17:00" and stuff (everything Time#parse can
parse).you should even be able to control thestart time and interval via the
methods #next_start and #interval (they're attr_accessors)
for me its working perfectly, but a little bit of testing would sure be good
did i mention that i love bgdrb more and more every day i find a new thing
it can work out for me?
