Need advice on running timer based cron jobs

Hi,

We made a cool desktop product on Flex that runs on the Air environment. After having released it a while ago, we think about taking its performance to the next level by being able to mimic cron job like functionality based on timers.

However, one of the setbacks for us while we tried to do something similar earlier was the Flash platform's single threaded architecture. So if we are running something resource consuming in the background, chances are that the UI might get stuck if a part of it is being rendered. That will make things looks ugly and we are trying to find ways to make it work.

Can anyone recommend anything that would help?

Thanks!

Vivek
