I run a cron job with:

0 17 * * * mythfilldatabase --refresh-today

in order to catch last minute updates daily.  Given the timing of this, you
may manually want to run a similar command during the day on Sunday.  I
think there was some talk recently on the list that a --max-days option
should be included as well.
