I would say GCD is probably your best bet for this, since you can  
simply arrange to have a ruby block execute when your timer fires.

Of course, now that I go looking for documentation in the MacRuby  
source tree which describes how to do timers "the ruby way", I can't  
find any, but I'm sure it's hiding in there somewhere, right guys? :)
