Yet again, you jump on me out of the blue for no discernable reason[*]:

1) I'm not running mythfilldatabase at 6pm; I said I used to. As for
   why . . .
2) "do this" refers to the --refresh-today flag (and reason; I also
   used 6pm, actually, during the brief time I had the cron job set
   up) that Kevin Kuphal mentioned.
