[thelist] php timer

Personally - we just run it as a shell script, and generate an html output
file everytime the script is successfully run!

A php db import script runs every 15 minutes if it detects that a checksum
file has been modified.

Fundamentally - it's a shell script telling the php application to run a php
script in a particular location, on a particular file at a given time.
