I'd like all my past, present and future Twitter activity
to get saved to a text (csv or xml or whatever) file on Dropbox. I'd like to think about this as little as possible. What's my best bet?

I don't really trust Twitter to keep all my activity online for the rest of eternity. Dropbox is great because it sits on the actual filesystems of multiple computers I keep in multiple locations. I've done one-off dumps of twitter activity in the past, but never keep it up.
I have Linux or OSX systems to run this on. I am very comfortable with the basics of unix cron, output redirection, etc.
I would just like something that runs in the background, recovers from downtime gracefully, and spits out plain text. If I have to use something different to build an archive to present day, I can live with that.
