Hi crew:

I want to delete material from a database if it is older than say one 
month since its insertion. However I don't want to have to run a 
cron-job or something, as there must exist a way for a script to 
execute itself periodically or to have the MySQL database tell *itself* 
to execute a specific SQL query periodically.

I've heard it is possible to 'sink' a query into an Oracle DB itself 
instead of running something like a cron-job, so I'd like to hear from 
anyone who may have done this for MySQL or knows of an alternative 
method I can achieve my goal.

Many thnaks to you all in advance.
