I agree with the -1 of cron.. it is a slippery slope.. You think
"Oh, I'll just cron this one job", and before you know it you have 5
or 10 of them.. And no way to monitor them from the webapp... So
you start communicating via database tables..
And then you deploy on a new server, and forget to check the crontab
because it's under some sort of special user account! BackgroundRB
is much better..
But I agree that it needs another release.. I have a version that
isn't trunk latest that works great for me, but when I tried trunk I
had lots of errors so went back to what worked. Joe, I can zip it
and send it to you.. Not sure what "version" of backgroundrb it is
