Have you ever seen (or played) one of those "Browser Games" where you build stuff, create armies and fight other players? Right now I need to know how to do those scheduled tasks...

I'm building a PHP appilcation for my job. I work at a visitors center and I want to create an application where you can add visits and let a worker to "add himself" to the shift. The server should perform some automated tasks like finishing the "registration" period for a shift and deleting or archiving a Visit after it has ocurred.

Would you mind pointing out how to do that with PHP?

P.S.: If there is an open source application similar to mine out there, I could use a link to it :cheesy:
