Well, a cheap, ugly hack would be to create a god character that can
reboot (or issue other commands you want performed periodically) and
call an expect script from cron that telnets to the mudport, logs
on, warns users a reboot is scheduled, waits, whatever you like,
then issues the reboot command. Not necessarily secure to have a
god's passwd imbedded in a script, but then again if they can get to
the mudfiles they can brute-force all your passwords in short order
