Well, at 1 hour 15 minutes  webrick froze.  I had to kill it and it 
output two "deadlock" errors.

I guess rails just can't handle running periodically_call_remote with an 
interval shorter than 1 second. eventually two calls are synced up and 
it deadlocks.  the faster I run periodically..  the sooner the deadlock.

If I run lighttpd as a load balancer with cluster would that alleviate 
the problem?  If that is the problem?
